The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a Feb. 26 committee vote on the nomination of David Ogden to be deputy attorney general.
A vote that day would come three weeks after Ogden, a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, went before the committee for his confirmation hearing. The committee is expected to back his nomination because Democrats have a three-vote margin, though Republicans could try to delay a vote one more week. A vote by the full Senate would follow.
The committee’s Web site has Ogden’s answers to a background questionnaire and to senators’ questions, as well as letters regarding his nomination.
Also at the meeting, the committee is scheduled to consider its rules and legislation related to fraud enforcement, public corruption prosecutions, and railroad antitrust laws.
