The committee confirmed Green on June 16, 2011.[1][3]

Green's nomination was returned to the president on December 17, 2011.[1]

History of the nomination

After his nomination was returned in December 2011, Green spoke to the press and blamed local members of the Republican Party for stalling his nomination. Though he did not specifically name anyone, Green cited examples of ways that he had angered the GOP in Monroe County over the years, including defecting from the party and prosecuting certain individuals while district attorney. The Chairman of the Monroe County GOP denied those allegations and stated that no one in the local party was connected to anyone in Washington, D.C.[4] President Obama did not resubmit the nomination in 2012.
