The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday approved Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Danielle Hunsaker by a vote of 16–6, with the nomination now going to the full Senate.
If confirmed, she will replace Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain who assumed senior status on Dec. 31, 2016.
A hearing on her nomination took place Sept. 25.
