Obama has renominated former NYS Solicitor General Caitlin Halligan to the federal district court in Washington D.C..

NRA opposed her the first time around on the basis she tried to undermine the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.  Senate Republicans fillibustered the nomination last December and she was not confirmed.  Given that the President is even more unpopular now than he was back then I do not see her nomination moving forward.
