Jill Pryor a step closer to the 11th Circuit (Updated)
Senator Reid has called for a cloture vote on Jill Pryor's nomination. It will be up for a vote on Friday morning, which means barring some craziness, she should be our newest 11th Circuit judge by early next week.
She will fill Judge Birch's seat which has been vacant for 1436 days!

Update-- the actual confirmation may by happen till September because the Senate takes its summer break this Friday.
