Sen. Cornyn made the following statement Tuesday regarding the nomination of Justice Priscilla Owen to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals: "Priscilla Owen’s nomination is an important part of the unfinished business left by the Senate in the previous Congress. Justice Owen will receive a fair hearing before the Judiciary Committee and a timely vote on the floor of the Senate. "I am confident that this outstanding jurist will be approved overwhelmingly, and that she will make an excellent addition to the federal bench."
