WASHINGTON, D.C. (WLBT) - Mississippi Supreme Court Justice James Graves may have to wait a little while longer to find out if he will get a federal judgeship.

Thursday, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee met but did not consider the nomination of Judge Graves to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Graves' nomination, along with 10 other people up for federal judgeships, were held over.

A committee spokesman says the nominations will be rescheduled for a February 3rd meeting.

President Barack Obama nominated the slate of federal judges, including Graves.
