President George W. Bush is expected to nominate former White House insider Dabney Friedrich to fill the recently vacated seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, sources say. The White House is in the final stages of finalizing the nomination to replace Judge Gladys Kessler, who took senior status last month. Friedrich spent three years as an associate counsel in the White House, where she oversaw judicial nominations, including ones for the Supreme Court.
