Over the past year, President Obama has nominated a total of four individuals to fill judicial vacancies on the bench of the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT). Last August, President Obama announced an intent to nominate U.S. Department of Justice Attorney Jeanne E. Davidson to serve on the CIT and replace Senior Judge Donald C. Pogue. The Senate received Ms. Davidson's nomination on January 7, 2015 and her nomination remains pending. On July 30, 2015, President Obama presented three additional nominees to serve on the CIT to the Senate, including (1) Elizabeth J. Drake, an international trade lawyer in Washington, who was nominated to replace Senior Judge Richard K. Eaton; (2) Jennifer Choe Groves, an international trade and intellectual property lawyer in New York, who was nominated to replace Senior Judge Gregory Wright Carman; and (3) Justice Gary Stephen Katzmann of the Massachusetts Appeals Court, who was nominated to replace Senior Judge Jane A. Restani.
