Three judicial nominees to federal courts in Washington, D.C., faced little opposition when they appeared for their confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

The court is notable for a docket stocked with Guantanamo Bay detainee cases and issues of federal regulation.
