Barack Obama. Following is a list of all United States federal judges appointed by President Barack Obama during his presidency.[1] As of May 2009, there are 15 vacancies on the United States courts of appeals with 3

nominations pending, and 54 vacancies on the United States district courts.[2][3] At least 24 additional federal judiciary vacancies (including one vacancy at the Supreme Court and 6 vacancies on the United States courts of appeals) are anticipated before the end of the 111th Congress.[4][5] Obama made his first formal judicial nomination on March 17, 2009, tapping district judge David F. Hamilton for the Seventh Circuit.[6] On April 2, 2009, Obama nominated district judges Andre M. Davis and Gerard E. Lynch for open seats on the Fourth and Second Circuits, respectively.[7] As of May 2009, Barack Obama has made no recess appointments and has had no nominees approved by the United States Senate. He is presently tied with William Henry Harrison for the least number of judicial appointments seated. While Obama has made no appointments to Article I courts, he has elevated sitting judge Emily C. Hewitt of the United States Court of Federal Claims to be Chief Judge of that court.[8]
