How many judges will the US Senate confirm in 2020?


In 2019, the US Senate confirmed 102 judges, the 2nd highest total in its history.(1) As of 19th January 2020, there are 79 vacancies (2) out of the 890 authorised judgeships in the US, but this number could increase.

This question asks: How many judges will the United States Senate Confirm in 2020?

Resolution will use the number of judges confirmed in 2020 as listed on this page of US Judges confirmed by the 116th Congress. If that source becomes unavailable, a source of comparable quality should be searched for at resolution time.
