In another setback for President George W. Bush's judicial nominations, the White House withdrew on Wednesday the nomination of E. Duncan Getchell Jr. for one of five vacant judgeships on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Getchell wrote the president last week, saying that, "after prayerful consideration, I have determined to withdraw my name from consideration" following press reports of Senate Democrats' opposition.
