Yale Law Library has recently created a new database that tracks federal judicial nominations. The site includes information on federal judicial nominees from the 103rd Congress to the present. The Yale Law Library Reference Blog reports that the site offers

  1. The ability to quickly and easily track down nominees based on a number of faceted criteria including congress, nominating president, and nomination result.
  2. The ability to track nominees and nominations via RSS feeds.
  3. Up to date contact information for sitting judges nominated and confirmed since the 103rd congress, and nominees from the 111th congress forward.

While it would be next to impossible not to hear about a U.S. Supreme Court nominee, this looks like a good way to stay up to date on other federal judicial nominees.
