Bush's Recess Appointment Stands

Last year while the Senate was recessed, Pres. Bush appointed William Pryor to serve as a judge on the Eleventh Circuit. The appointment was challenged. The Eleventh Circuit upheld the recess appointment, and the Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal. (Hat tip to Betsy's Page.)

Pryor's recess appointment will expire at the end of this Senate session. Pres. Bush has nominated for a permanent appointment, but the Democrats are planning to filibuster his nomination again.
