This is wonderful news. See here for more.
I sincerely compliment President Obama, Senators Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse and former Senator Mike Johanns for setting aside partisan considerations in order put on the federal trial bench an exceptionally well qualified person who is also one of the best human beings I know. Sometimes politicians act like statesmen (and women). This is one of those happy occasions.
What great day for the District of Nebraska! It will be an even greater day after Bob is quickly confirmed and then takes his seat as a United States District Judge. Eagerly, I look forward to dumping my old “dog” cases on Judge Rossiter.
