The U.S. Senate’s push to confirm the Trump administration’s court picks is set to resume Wednesday, as the judiciary committee takes up six more picks—one for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit; another for U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia; three for the Northern District of Illinois; and one pick for the Western District of North Carolina.

Among the nominees set to appear on Capitol Hill: Mary Rowland, up for a Chicago trial court seat, was reportedly the Trump administration’s first LGBT judicial nominee. Carl Nichols, a Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr litigation partner, is in line for a seat on Washington’s federal trial bench. McGuireWoods white-collar partner Kenneth Bell was picked for a North Carolina judgeship.
