After enduring a record 1,506-day wait, U.S. District Judge Richard A. Paez of Los Angeles won Senate confirmation Thursday to the federal appeals court. The surprisingly lopsided 59-to-39 vote ended a bitter partisan fight over the long-stalled nomination--one capped by Vice President Al Gore suspending his presidential campaign to stand by in the Capitol to cast a tie-breaking vote, if needed. But Gore's vote was not needed.

OPINION

Judge Richard A. Paez deserves credit for sticking to the trespass issue in the Randall Terry trial (Aug. 10). Terry's God Squad tactics don't work for the judge any better than they do for women. Naturally, Terry screams violation of his constitutional rights, an odd charge for someone who, in repeatedly blocking women's access to medical care, violates constitutional rights for a living.
