Washington D.C. – Following Senate confirmation today of the 200th federal judge nominated by President Biden, Angela Martinez of the District of Arizona, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“The confirmation of 200 outstanding federal judges is one of the most important achievements of President Biden and Senate Democrats under the leadership of Majority Leader Schumer and Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Durbin. These judges are extraordinarily qualified, historically diverse, committed to civil and human rights, and making a difference in people’s lives every day.  And the work must continue.  Let’s mark this celebration of the 200th confirmation with renewed commitment to nominating and confirming as many fair-minded federal judges as possible in the remaining months of the president’s term.
