Happy Friday, and welcome to the National Law Journal’s Bench Report, a bi-weekly briefing on all things related to the federal bench.

The pressure to broadcast Trump’s criminal trials has made its way to a judiciary rules panel. We take a look at the question of whether a federal rule could be changed in time to allow those consequential hearings to be aired. Plus, we’ve got the latest judicial nominations news: a replacement for Sen. Feinstein at the Senate Judiciary Committee, some of Biden’s picks advancing and the continued push for Republican senators to work with the White House on filling vacancies.
