Caitlin Halligan, one of the most respected appellate lawyers in the country, was renominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Upon her confirmation, she would become only the sixth female judge in this court's 119-year history.
Ms. Halligan has a broad range of legal experience, including government service, private practice, and academia. She has honed her practice in state and federal appellate courts, and has argued five cases before the Supreme Court. The D.C. Circuit is widely regarded as the second-most important court in the United States, and there are currently three vacancies on this important court. It is unconscionable that an individual with Caitlin Halligan's legal talents and experience has been waiting a year and a half for a confirmation vote.
Women, and all Americans, are entitled to a fully-functioning court system. Tell your Senators to support the nomination of Caitlin Halligan for the D.C. Circuit.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing as your constituent to urge you to support the nomination of Caitlin Halligan for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
