“I am pleased that the Senate Judiciary Committee approved Judge Bill Pryor’s nomination. He is deserving of confirmation by the Senate to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Since his recess appointment, Judge Pryor has served on the federal bench with impartiality and fairness. He understands and respects the constitutional role of the judiciary and specifically, the role of the federal courts in our legal system.”
“I am hopeful that the Senate will afford Judge Pryor the up-or-down vote he deserves,” Shelby added.
