.- A pro-family group is pleased that Justice Janice Rogers Brown has become the newest judge on the D.C. Court of Appeals. Brown received a confirmation vote of 56 to 43 yesterday and a cloture vote of 65-32 one day earlier.

"We are pleased that Justice Brown, who, has finally joined the D.C. Court of Appeals. She is and," said

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said Brown “helped break glass ceilings, fight past racial barriers and overcome religious litmus tests” and is “a wonderful role model to our youth.

“We trust her to serve dutifully and fairly,” he said.

The Family Research Council l has asked that a simple up-or-down vote also be held for judicial nominees William Myers, Henry Saad, Brett Kavanaugh, William Haynes Thomas Griffith, and Susan Neilson.

“The courts are in distress and we need to make sure that qualified jurists are receiving a fair deal,” said Perkins. “We are eager to see the others pass through the process as well and receive their vote in the Senate."

Later this week, a floor vote is expected on William Pryor, who was first nominated 790 days ago.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) has vowed to restore Constitutional propriety in the nominating process if any further judicial filibusters should occur. The vote on Brown was filibustered for two years.

He and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced agreements on Monday to move forward on the nominations of Richard Griffin and David McKeague for the 6th Circuit Appeals Court in Cincinnati. Both were first nominated 1,307 days ago.

Also the Christian Coalition of America commended the United States Senate for confirming California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, District of Columbia.

“President Bush is to be commended for reaching out to minorities and trying to be inclusive,” said coalition president Roberta Combs.

“Left-wing Democrats should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for putting obstacles in the way of successful blacks and Hispanics and for voting against this American success story," she said.
