WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama has nominated two Maryland judges to fill vacancies on Baltimore's U.S. District Court.

The White House announced Wednesday that the president has nominated Judge Ellen Hollander of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and Magistrate Judge James Bredar of U.S. District Court.

If confirmed by the Senate, Hollander would replace Judge Andre Davis, who moved on to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit last November. Bredar would fill the vacancy created by Judge Frederick Motz's decision to take senior status.

Hollander and Bredar were recommended by Maryland's senators, Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin. Mikulski says the judges "have a proven record of service" and is urging the Senate to confirm them quickly.
