Circuit:

“Just days after achieving a milestone of 40 judicial confirmations, President Biden has announced two more supremely qualified circuit court nominees who will improve judicial decision-making and bring vital experience needed to strengthen our judiciary. We are especially pleased by the nomination of Nancy Abudu, who possesses the depth of civil rights experience crucial for the Eleventh Circuit. Abudu is exactly the type of nominee that is needed to deliver equal justice, and we urge the Senate to quickly confirm her in the new year.”
