Judicial nominees testify before committee

LOUISVILLE - Two federal judicial nominees from Kentucky are now awaiting their fates after testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

U.S. Attorney David J. Hale and Bowling Green lawyer Greg Stivers told senators about their qualifications and answered questions about their careers as they attempt to take places on the bench in the western half of Kentucky.

WKYU-FM in Bowling Green reported that Stivers explained how practicing law for 29 years allowed him to learn from the judges he appeared before.

"I would say my best qualification is the fact that I have tried cases in front of judges and juries for the last 29 years, and through each of those cases, you learn a little bit from the way judges handle things," Stivers said.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, told his colleagues that he's known Stivers, a partner in the Bowling Green law firm of Kerrick, Bachert, and Stivers, for more than two decades.
