Stabenow, Levin support 3 Michigan judicial nominees

WOODTV.com & WOOD TV8 - Grand Rapids news and weather - Stabenow, Levin support 3 Michigan judicial nominees:
"Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin said Tuesday they support three nominees submitted by President Bush to the U.S. District Court for Michigan's Western District.

The three nominees _ Grand Rapids lawyer Robert Jonker, Berrien County Circuit Judge Paul Maloney and Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Janet Neff _ told the Senate Judiciary Committee that they would respect the principles of judicial restraint if confirmed.

Stabenow, introducing the appointees, said they bring 'distinguished legal careers to the federal bench' and she hoped their nominations would reach the full Senate quickly.

'Senator Levin and I are bringing our full support, enthusiastic support, for the nominees,' Stabenow told Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., who led the hearing."
