Two attorneys from Kentucky nominated for positions on the federal bench are set for a hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

U.S. Attorney David J. Hale and Bowling Green lawyer Greg N. Stivers have been tapped to fill two vacancies in the U.S. District Court.

The committee has scheduled their hearings for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Washington, D.C. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., will preside over the hearing.

Hale has been U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky since 2010. He previously practiced law in Louisville and was an assistant U.S. attorney.

Stivers has practiced in Bowling Green since 1985.

The American Bar Association has given both men a rating of "unanimously qualified."
