Senate Confirms Brown to Federal Appeals Court

The Senate votes 56 to 43 to confirm California Judge Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. All Republicans in the Senate supported Brown, while all but one Democrat opposed her nomination. Her nomination was brought up for a vote as part of a deal to retain the right of filibuster in the Senate.
