Senate panel to hold hearing for Kentucky nominees



Two attorneys from Kentucky nominated for positions on the federal bench are set for a hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

U.S. Attorney David J. Hale and Bowling Green lawyer Greg N. Stivers have been tapped to fill two vacancies in the U.S. District Court.

Hale has been U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky since 2010. He previously practiced law in Louisville and was an assistant U.S. attorney.

Stivers has practiced in Bowling Green since 1985.


The American Bar Association has given both men a rating of "unanimously qualified."
