Kappos Confirmation Hearing Set for July 29

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary has scheduled a hearing on nominations for Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 226 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.

Also, Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy has released the committee's completed questionnaire for David Kappos, which reportedly has some interesting information, according to Tech Daily Dose:

Kappos details his background, professional affiliations and pro bono work as well as his financials. According to the form, he owns vested IBM options valued at approximately $147,000 and those options would be sold within 90 days of his appointment as the PTO's top dog. He also owns unvested IBM options and restricted stock valued at about $1.5 million. All of that deferred income would
be cancelled upon his resignation from IBM. On a more personal note, Kappos owns
property in Tenants Harbor, Maine originally valued at $100,000.

This, and hundreds of other pages of information are available on the committee's Web site here.
