U.S. District Judge Luis Felipe Restrepo of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania is one step away from taking the federal appeals bench and is set to go before the full U.S. Senate for a confirmation vote.

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed Restrepo by voice vote during an executive business meeting July 9, allowing Restrepo to clear the penultimate hurdle to confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The committee also passed Travis McDonough, nominated for district judge for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Waverly Crenshaw, nominated for district judge for the Middle District of Tennessee. The Senate confirmation vote has not yet been scheduled.
