Paul Watford Confirmed to the Ninth Circuit

I’m delighted to say that — according to an e-mail I just received (not from Paul or any mutual friend) — Paul Watford has just been confirmed by a 61-34 vote. (The Democratic Senators voted for him, as well as Republican Senators Alexander, Brown, Collins, Graham, Kyl, Lugar, McCain, Murkowski, and Snowe; some of those are quite conservative.) For all the reasons I mentioned before, I’m confident Paul will be a superb judge.
