(Washington, DC) The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, today called on the Senate to reject further delays and vote up-or-down on the nearly three year-old nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. 
 
This is another example of a well qualified nominee who is in judicial limbo and whose nomination deserves an up-or-down vote by the full Senate without further delay, said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, who supports President Bushs judicial nominees.   After nearly three years since being nominated, there has been more than sufficient time to examine the background and work of Brett Kavanaugh.  He is an exceptional nominee who will serve the federal appeals court well.  The threat of a filibuster for this nominee only reaffirms the strident position of some in the Senate to obstruct President Bushs judicial nominees.  Its time for a vote on this nominee and we call on the Senate to act without further delay.  The time has come to end the delay game and permit an up-or-down vote on Brett Kavanaugh.
 
Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice focuses on constitutional law and is based in Washington, D.C.
