Washington D.C. – Following today’s confirmation of Rachel Bloomekatz to a seat on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“We are overjoyed at the confirmation of Rachel Bloomekatz of Ohio to a seat on the federal bench. Few people have shown more devotion to the rights of disadvantaged communities than Bloomekatz. In her law career, she has been an advocate for consumers, workers, voters, personal injury victims, and the guardians of young children. Her commitment to fairness and justice for all will make her a truly outstanding judge. Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown has been a strong advocate for her. We congratulate Brown, President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Judiciary Chair Durbin on her confirmation. We also encourage the Senate to continue moving forward with confirmations of judicial nominees who are awaiting action. Adding more excellent nominees like Bloomekatz to the bench needs to be a priority; the Senate should use the current work period to confirm all of the quality judicial nominees on the calendar currently awaiting votes.”
