Washington D.C. – Following the confirmation of two more Biden judges, Kenly Kato for the Central District of California and Julia Kobick for the District of Massachusetts, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:
“Congratulations to President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Durbin on the two latest confirmations of district judges, Kenly Kato for California and Julia Kobick for Massachusetts. With these confirmations the Biden administration reaches a great milestone: 150 federal judges confirmed, 100 of whom are women. These Biden judges are highly credentialed, brilliant, and diverse individuals who are great additions to the federal bench. We look forward to the Senate continuing this good work and confirming the remaining Biden judicial nominees in the pipeline before the end of the year, because the clock is ticking.”
