A Historic Day for Our Judiciary

 

This morning, the Senate confirmed three federal judges. On the one hand, they are not unique; like all of the President’s judges and judicial nominees, they have the necessary intellect, experience, integrity, and temperament. But they are special in that each of them is a trailblazer on their courts:

Today’s confirmations also set historic milestones:

  • For the first time in history, the Senate has confirmed two openly gay judges on the same day.

 

 

  • President Obama also has now appointed more Hispanic judges than any other President, breaking the record previously held by President George W. Bush.

 

As we’ve said before, these “firsts” — and these milestones — are important, not because these judges will consider cases differently, but because a judiciary that better resembles our nation instills even greater confidence in our justice system, and because these judges will serve as role models for generations of lawyers to come.

Congratulations to our newest federal judges, who we are confident will serve with honor, distinction, and fidelity to the rule of law.

This is the First Time Our Judicial Pool Has Been This Diverse

 

The men and women the President has nominated to enforce our laws and deliver justice represent his unprecedented commitment expanding the diversity of our nation’s highest courts. That’s a big deal — so if you learned something new here, pass it on.
