The document embedded below, Jill A Pryor. Yale Law Journal 1988. The Natural Born Citizen Clause and Presidential Eligibility: An Approach for Resolving Two Hundred Years of Uncertainty, was uploaded to our Patriot1980 scribd.com account on Febuary 27th 2011 – before the creation of the Was Obama Born In Kenya (WOBIK) blog and I don’t think its been read or circulated much among our readers because its never been included in a report here.
Attorney Jill A. Pryor has attracted sporadic attention in the national news the last few years. A brief and very limited background in regards to the last few years of Pryor’s political life is provided below:
On March 22nd 1990 Judge Stanley Francis Birch, Jr. was nominated by George H. W. Bush for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
Birch was confirmed by the US Senate on May 11th 1990 and received his commission on May 14th 1990.
He retired from judicial service on August 29th 2010.
That legal office or seat is still vacant today (i.e., August 7th 2014).
Jill A. Pryor was nominated on February 16 2012 by Barack H. Obama to serve as a Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, to replaced Judge Stanley Francis Birch, Jr.
Georgia Senators (both are Republicans) Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson blocked Pryor’s nomination.
Pryor was nominated again, this time on January 3rd 2013, by Barack H. Obama to serve as a Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, to replaced Judge Stanley Francis Birch, Jr.
On May 13th 2014 Jill A. Pryor and Julie E. Carnes (Carnes also to be a United States Circuit Judge for the Eleventh Circuit) received a hearing before the full panel of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. Video of the entire hearing can be viewed at http://www.judiciary.senate.gov/meetings/judicial-nominations-2014-05-13
On July 30th 2014 the US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Democrat – Nevada) motioned to invoke cloture on Pryor’s nomination.
On July 31st 2014 the US Senate voted 58-33 for cloture on Pryor’s nomination.
A confirmation vote has been scheduled for September 8th 2014.
NOTE: The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 requires that the US Congress (House and Senate) take a break “not later than July 31 of each year,” or in an odd-numbered year “that Friday in August which occurs at least thirty days before the first Monday in September (Labor Day) of such year to the second day after Labor Day.”
This year Congress closed down on August 1st – the first Friday in August.
Jill A. Pryor is currently a Georgia attorney and has served on the State Bar of Georgia Board of Governors and on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Legal Services Program. She has served as President of the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers and as Chair of the State Bar of Georgia’s Appellate Practice Section.
