Female Judges Confirmed Yesterday Break More Barriers

Yesterday, the Senate confirmed three nominees to federal district courts, Nancy Rosenstengel to the Southern District of Illinois, James Peterson to the Western District of Wisconsin, and Indira Talwani to the District of Massachusetts. Judge Rosenstengel’s confirmation is notable because she will be the first female judge in the Southern District of Illinois, bringing the number of women who are confirmed as the “first” in their district under the Obama Administration to 14. In addition, Judge Talwani will be the first person of Asian descent to serve as a federal judge in Massachusetts, and only the second female Article III judge of South Asian descent nationwide.

Next week, the Senate will vote on the nomination of Robin Rosenbaum to a Florida-based seat on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Upon her confirmation, there will be three female judges among nine active judges on this court – another step forward in the long journey towards diversity on the federal bench
