Senate Compromise - Pending Nominees

The compromise specifically addresses 5 pending nominees. Of the pending nominees, the Senate will vote on 3, "Janice Rogers Brown (D.C. Circuit), William Pryor (11th Circuit), and Priscilla Owen (5th Circuit)".

Two other pending nominees, "William Myers (9th Circuit) and Henry Saad (6th Circuit)", will not likely receive a vote. Regarding Myers and Saad, the deal only says that no one makes any agreement to vote one way or the other on cutting off debate. The effect is that the Democrats will filibuster Myers and Saad without end and will thus block them from ever receiving a vote.

The deal implies that no other nominations are pending and will be treated as future nominees.
