Title: Nomination of Caitlin Joan Halligan to the District of Columbia Circuit Court

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on the confirmation of Caitlin Joan Halligan as a United States Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Note:

NOTE: INVOKING CLOTURE REQUIRES A 3/5 MAJORITY OF THE SENATE. IT IS NOT A VOTE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION, BUT LIMITS FURTHER DEBATE TO 30 HOURS. CLOTURE IS TYPICALLY USED TO END A FILIBUSTER. A FAILED CLOTURE VOTE OFTEN PREVENTS THE LEGISLATION FROM EVER COMING TO A VOTE.
