A divided Senate today, by a vote of 53-43, approved Third Circuit nominee Stephanos Bibas, with Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) the sole Democrat to vote in his favor.
Bibas will replace Judge Marjorie O. Rendell, who took senior status in 2016.
Bibas’ confirmation marks the fourth Court of Appeals confirmation this week (Joan Larsen to the 6th Circuit, Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th Circuit, and Allison Eid to the 10th Circuit).
