Happy Friday from Avalon and Brad, and welcome to another roundup of the week’s news about the judiciary. This week Avalon takes a look at a SCOTUS amicus brief filed on behalf of a handful of federal judges hoping to see a panel rehearing practice get the ax. Brad, meanwhile, continues to try and keep up with Biden’s judicial nominations. Despite a canceled Senate Judiciary meeting this week, the president still saw five judges get confirmed with plenty more waiting in the wings.  

As always, please reach out to us via [email protected] or [email protected] with any tips or feedback. Follow us on Twitter: @AvalonZoppo and @BradKutner.
