Three appeals court picks—David Porter, Ryan Nelson and Richard Sullivan—were among the 15 names the U.S. Senate confirmed to federal judgeships Thursday, after Senate Republicans and Democrats agreed to vote on a batch of judicial nominees as part of a compromise.

Porter, a Pittsburgh-based shareholder at the firm Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, was confirmed to the Third Circuit, 50-45. President Donald Trump nominated Porter to the appeals court in April over the strong objections of his home state Sen. Bob Casey, a Democrat. Casey did not return a blue slip for Porter, while the Republican senator from Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey, did.
