Obama to name three to influential court

(CNN) - President Barack Obama is set to put forward three nominations for the influential United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Tuesday, officials told CNN.

The officials, speaking anonymously since the announcement has not yet happened, said the president will nominate attorney Patricia Millett, law professor Cornelia "Nina" Pillard, and U.S. District Judge Robert L. Wilkins to the court, which is often regarded as the second most important judicial panel in the country after the United States Supreme Court.
