The Senate just confirmed Paul Matey’s nomination to the Third Circuit. The announced vote was 54 to 45. Congratulations, almost-Judge Matey. He receives his commission and officially becomes a judge when he takes his judicial oath, which normally occurs a few days after confirmation.
Confirmed, 54-45; Executive Calendar #19, Paul B. Matey, of New Jersey, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Third Circuit.
