WASHINGTON, D.C., May 22, 2024 – Today the Senate voted to confirm Angela Martinez to the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, marking the 200th lifetime judicial appointment for the Biden Administration.

Alliance for Justice President Rakim H.D. Brooks issued the following statement:

“We thank Senators Durbin and Schumer and the Judiciary Committee for their work in prioritizing the importance of judicial nominations and look forward to continuing this momentum. While this critical milestone is one to be celebrated, we must keep pushing and seize every opportunity to fill every seat, especially with judges from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds, including those with labor and economic justice experience.  We know how important a robust and complete judicial branch is for upholding the rule of law, resolving disputes fairly, and safeguarding the rights we all deserve.

“We look forward to the Biden administration continuing to nominate highly qualified and diverse candidates and to the Senate prioritizing confirmation proceedings for every nomination pending on the Senate floor before the year is over.”
