Tia Johnson nominated for CAAF vacancy

Col. (ret) M. Tia Johnson has been nominated by President Joe Biden to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. The seat she will fill if confirmed was previously occupied by now-Senior Judge Scott W. Stucky, who was hanged the other day in the court's portrait gallery.

Congratulations to each.

One hopes the nomination proceeds quickly so the continuing indefensible flow of petition denials (which bar access to the Supreme Court) by only four judges during the months-long interregnum is stanched. Perhaps someone will also figure out a way to fix the statute. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at least tried, but his bill got referred to the House Armed Services Committee rather than the House Judiciary Committee. Mr. Gohmert, please try again. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, please help. Mr. President, can't the Administration make this a priority?
