While Democrats Claim They Have Confirmed More Than 200 Of President Bush's Judicial Nominees, 10 Of The 52 Nominees To The Circuit Court Of Appeals Were Filibustered. (Jesse J. Holland, "Senate Confirms First Judge Of Bush's Second Term," The Associated Press, 4/11/05)

I imagine that the issue with these 10 is that they will change the balance of power in their respective courts, or they are in a court of great presence in which their presence and power could derail many liberal causes.

Does anyone have a list of the courts to which they're nominated and the balance of power in those courts?

If all of the President’s currently pending circuit court nominees are confirmed, 11 of the 13 circuits will tilt "right," i.e., have a majority of Republican appointees. I don't know which the two leftovers are ("left"-overs--ha, I kill me!), but I'd guess the 9th and the DC circuit.

Judge Terrence Boyle (4th Circuit)
William Haynes (4th Circuit)
Justice Priscilla Owen (5th Circuit)
Judge David McKeague (6th Circuit)
Judge Susan Neilson (6th Circuit)
Judge Henry Saad (6th Circuit)
Judge Richard Griffin (6th Circuit)
William Myers (9th Circus)
Judge William Pryor (11th Circuit)
Justice Janice Brown (DC Circuit)
Brett Kavanaugh (DC Circuit)
Thomas Griffith (DC Circuit)

8 District Court nominees:

Paul Crotty (Southern District of New York)
James Dever (Eastern District of North Carolina)
Robert Conrad (Western District of North Carolina)
Judge Thomas Ludington (Eastern District of Michigan)
Judge Daniel Ryan (Eastern District of Michigan)
Judge Sean Cox (Eastern District of Michigan)
Michael Seabright (District of Hawaii)
Peter Sheridan (District of New Jersey)

Got the names from a good link: http://64.233.179.104/search?q=cache:mkIC_NivPVUJ:www.techlawjournal.com/topstories/2004/20041223.asp+bush+nominates+to+the+6th+Circuit&hl=en&client=firefox-a
