Hispanic National Bar Association Urges Consideration of the Nomination of the Honorable Luis Felipe Restrepo to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (04/30/15)
Letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley: "to urge the Senate Judiciary Committee to swiftly consider the nomination of the Honorable Luis Felipe Restrepo to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.... Judge Restrepo was unanimously confirmed by the Senate by voice vote for his current seat in the Eastern District just two years ago. Despite that, his nomination has been awaiting committee consideration for over five months, and in that time, the seat he will fill on the Third Circuit has become a judicial emergency."
