Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - The U.S. Senate has voted to end debate and take action on the confirmation of four of President Barack Obama's nominees for U.S. District Court seats in Michigan.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin says he's confident that Tuesday's decision will lead to the Senate's approval of the nominees for the court in the eastern district of Michigan, based in Detroit.

The confirmations votes will be for Matthew Leitman, Judith Ellen Levy, Laurie J. Michelson and Linda Vivienne Parker. They would fill all remaining vacancies on the court.
