“Judicial nominees sitting on sidelines” (Web, Nov. 19) accurately describes the Senate’s terrible record for confirming judges, a record that has been persistent during President Obama’s first administration.

It is now past time for the Senate to consider the 19 well-qualified nominees whose nominations have been languishing on the floor. Now that the Senate has returned from its Thanksgiving recess to resume the lame-duck session, it should give the nominees up or down votes so the courts can deliver justice.
