Pamela Harris Nominated to Replace Andre Davis on Fourth Circuit

Todd Ruger is reporting at the Legal Times that President Obama is nominating Pamela Harris to fill the vacancy created when Judge Andre Davis assumed senior status this past February 28. [Update: the official White House press release is here.] Professor Harris’ biography is here. It seems likely that, if confirmed, Professor Harris would become the first Circuit Judge to maintain her chambers at the Greenbelt, Maryland federal courthouse.

Michael Wein previously reported here at the Maryland Appellate Blog that Neal Katyal (also of Georgetown Law) was among the names forwarded for the seat. Tough field.
