Rakim H.D. Brooks, the president of the Alliance for Justice, praised the nomination of public defenders and civil rights attorneys and said it “represents a paradigm shift in the composition and character of our federal courts.” He also encouraged Democrats to move swiftly to continue filling vacancies this year.
