Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom partner Michael Scudder, President Donald Trump’s nominee for a spot on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, largely escaped the tough questioning in his Senate hearing Wednesday that many of his fellow judicial nominees have faced. 

Scudder, and U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve of the Northern District of Illinois, who is also nominated for the Seventh Circuit and testified Wednesday, both have support from the Democratic senators from Illinois, Sens. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth. Home state senators’ approval of Trump’s judicial nominees has been a topic of contention recently, and Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, D-Iowa, announced last year that nominees would no longer need approval of both senators to move forward in the nomination process.
