The New York Law Journal reports that the confirmation of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court may be administrative complication at the Second Circuit. There is currently one vacancy created by Judge Chester J. Straub to takingsenior status, although Southern District Judge Gerard E. Lynch has already been nominated to take that position and has appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. There are three more slots will open up in the next five months as three more judges take senior status: Judge Guido Calabresi, effective July 21; Judge Robert D. Sack, Aug. 6; and Judge Barrington D. Parker, Oct. 10. The confirmation of Judge Sotomayor could leave as many as four openings on the 13-member court.
