New Judicial Nominations Database

The Yale Law Library has released a new site for researching and tracking federal judicial nominations. The site includes data for every federal judicial nomination from the 103rd Congress to the current day.
The site offers:
The ability to quickly and easily track down nominees based on a number of faceted criteria including congress, nominating president, and nomination result.
The ability to track nominees and nominations via RSS feeds.
Up-to-date contact information for sitting judges nominated and confirmed since the 103rd Congress, and nominees from the 111th Congress forward.
Possible future enhancements include:
Adding additional biographical data such as education (currently only Yale grads are tracked), gender, etc.
Adding the ability to narrow down nominations by date and sort congress information by date.
Better styled RSS feeds, RSS feeds for search results.
Enhanced search capabilities.
