Prof. Johnsen to be Nominated Again
This week marks the one year anniversary of President Obama’s nomination of our own Professor Dawn Johnsen to the Office of Legal Council. Since that time she has faced a great deal of opposition, and has never actually been confirmed by Congress for the post. This week also brings news that she will be renominated, though. According to several sources, including the New York Times, the Blog of Legal Times, and our more local papers the Herald Times and the IndyStar, the President has decided to resubmit her name, along with five others, to the Senate for reconsideration. Prof. Johnsen has continued to teach here at Maurer while awaiting her confirmation, and will be teaching a class this spring as well. As much as we will miss her here, we look forward to news of her confirmation.
