President Bush To Nominate Peter N. Kirsanow To Serve On The NLRB
From the White House's webpage:
The President intends to nominate Peter N. Kirsanow, of Ohio, to be a Member of the National Labor Relations Board, for the remainder of a five-year term expiring August 27, 2008. Mr. Kirsanow is currently a Partner with Benesch Friedlander Coplan & Aronoff, LLP. In addition, he serves as a Member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights. Mr. Kirsanow previously served as Senior Legal Counsel for Leaseway Transportation Corporation in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to that, he served as Labor Counsel for the City of Cleveland. Earlier in his career, Mr. Kirsanow practiced law with Calfee, Halter & Griswold, LLP. He received his bachelor's degree from Cornell University and his JD from Cleveland Marshall College of Law.
I'm sure that Kirsanow hopes that this nomination will be less problematic than his 2001 appointment to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. See U.S. v. Wilson, 290 F.3d 347 (D.C. Cir. 2002) (reversing district court and holding that the Commission improperly refused to recognize Kirsanow as one of its members).
