And, once again, conservative groups were hailing the nominations, suggesting the president has stuck to his commitment to appoint jurists who will stick to a conservative "constructionist" view of the Constitution. It's been clear since he took office that the federal judiciary is undergoing a foundational transformation that will reverberate for decades to come.

This is the second round of judicial nominations from the president following the confirmation of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The first round, led by the confirmation of Judge Amul R. Thapar of Kentucky to serve as a Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, has already been confirmed by the Senate.

Here's the list submitted by the White House:

Allison H. Eid of Colorado to serve as a circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Justice Allison Eid currently serves as the 95th justice of the Colorado Supreme Court. Justice Eid was appointed to the Colorado Supreme Court in 2006 and retained by the people of Colorado in 2008. Before assuming office, Justice Eid served as Colorado's solicitor general and as a tenured associate professor of law at the University of Colorado School of Law, where she authored several articles on federalism and taught courses on constitutional law, legislation and torts. Before joining the University of Colorado faculty, Justice Eid practiced commercial and appellate litigation with the Denver office of Arnold & Porter. Justice Eid has served as a member of the Advisory Committee on Federal Appellate Rules, and she is currently a member of the American Law Institute. Earlier in her career, Justice Eid clerked for Associate Justice Clarence Thomas of the United States Supreme Court and for Judge Jerry E. Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Justice Eid received her A.B. with distinction from Stanford University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and her J.D. with high honors from the University of Chicago Law School, where she was elected to the Order of the Coif and served as Articles Editor of the University of Chicago Law Review.

Ralph R. Erickson of North Dakota to serve as a circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Judge Ralph Erickson currently serves on the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota. He has served on the District Court of North Dakota since 2003. Judge Erickson served as the Chief Judge of the District of North Dakota from 2009-2016. Prior to his appointment to the federal bench, Judge Erickson was a judge on the North Dakota state district court for eight years. He currently serves as the chair of the United States Sentencing Commission's Tribal Issues Advisory Group. Judge Erickson graduated from Jamestown College, magna cum laude, with a B.A. in history, and received his J.D. from the University of North Dakota, where he served on the North Dakota Law Review.

Michael P. Allen of Florida to serve as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Michael P. Allen serves as a professor of law and director of the Veterans Law Institute at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida, where he teaches courses in civil and constitutional law, as well as veterans' benefits law. Professor Allen is a recognized expert on the law of veterans' benefits and has testified before Congress and published widely in the field. Before joining the Stetson law faculty 16 years ago, Professor Allen spent nine years as a civil trial attorney at the law firm Ropes & Gray in Boston, Massachusetts. Professor Allen received his B.A. in American history and political science, summa cum laude, from the University of Rochester, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and his J.D. from the Columbia University School of Law, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
