Obama Meets with Court Candidates

Ad Feedback

WASHINGTON - An official says President Barack Obama has started meeting potential Supreme Court nominees.

One of them is believed to be federal appeals court judge Diane Wood.

Obama is drawing closer to choosing a nominee to replace retiring Justice David Souter. An announcement is expected this month.

An official familiar with Obama's deliberations said he has started meeting with candidates but did not say with whom. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House has kept such details private.

Wood, who is from Chicago, was in Washington on Wednesday for a conference, but it is not clear if she met with Obama then. Another candidate, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, was at the White House on Tuesday for an auto event.
