The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to vote on another one of President Barack Obama’s nominees at its meeting Thursday.

Stephen Wigginton (Weilmuenster & Wigginton)

The panel is scheduled to consider Southern District of Illinois U.S. Attorney nominee Stephen R. Wigginton to replace George W. Bush holdover A. Courtney Cox, who has headed the Fairview Heights, Ill.-based office since November 2007.

Wigginton is currently a partner and co-owner of Weilmuenster & Wigginton PC. Read more about him here.

The committee is also slated to vote on Western District of Tennessee U.S. Attorney nominee Edward L. Stanton III at its meeting Thursday.

The committee has yet to schedule votes for another 13 would-be U.S. Attorneys. The panel has approved 57 of Obama’s U.S. Attorney nominees, 51 of whom have won Senate confirmation. There are 93 U.S. Attorney posts.
