Obama announced a new nomination for one of the many SDNY openings. It's Paul Engelmayer. Schumer recommended Engelmayer back in June of last year. So I guess it takes around 7 months for a recommendation to become a nominee. I guess that means we have another 4 months before Kuntz gets nominated to one of the open seats in EDNY.
Here's the chart of nominees (the links are to the relevant press releases):
- Mae D'Agostino (9/29/10)
- William Kuntz II (recommended - 10/14/10)
- Mike Green (1/27/11)
