The Washington Times reports that President Donald Trump today intends to nominate Stephanos Bibas for a Third Circuit judgeship. [My original post inaccurately stated that Trump reportedly nominated Bibas today.]
When Orin Kerr mentioned Bibas on Twitter as a potential Trump Third Circuit nominee, I thought, “not likely,” thereby demonstrating, once again, that I am no Trump mind reader.
UPDATE: early reaction from Orin Kerr on Volokh Conspiracy here and from Carrie Severino on National Review here. Severino gives Bibas’s age as “50 (approximate).” [UPDATE 3: actually Bibas is 47.]
UPDATE 2: The White House has confirmed that Trump today “announced his intent to nominate” Bibas.
