Senate Confirms First Native American Woman to the Federal Bench
Yesterday, the Senate confirmed three nominees to district court seats in Arizona – including Diane Humetawa, who becomes the first female Native American federal judge in this nation's history. In addition to this historic and long-overdue confirmation, this week, the Senate confirmed Robin Rosenbaum to a Florida-based seat on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals (on Monday). Procedural votes on three more Arizona district court nominees and Gregg Costa, nominated to a Texas seat on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, are expected later this week.
