NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports that yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected the nomination of Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen to the U.S. Court of Appeals. The committee's Democratic majority thwarted the nomination in a move that outraged President Bush, who called the vote "bad for the country."
