Stephanos Bibas reportedly will be nominated for Third Circuit (updated)

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.

More later.

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.
