Dallas appellate attorney and specialist David Coale of Lynn, Pinker, Cox & Hurst LLP says President Trump is on track to nominate more full-time judges to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals than any other president, according to a post on the website of Androvett Legal Media & Marketing.

Trump recently announced the nomination of Andrew Oldham as his third pick from Texas, after previously nominating to the 5th Circuit Don Willett, a Texas Supreme Court justice, and Jim Ho, a former Texas Solicitor General.
