WASHINGTON Wade Henderson, interim president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, released the following statement on President Biden’s latest slate of judicial nominations, including the nominations of Arianna Freeman to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Tiffany Cartwright to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, Nusrat Choudhury and Natasha Merle to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, among others:

“President Biden has impressed us with his outstanding nominations to our federal courts, and this latest slate of nominees is remarkable. While public trust in our courts has eroded in previous years, this administration and the Senate majority are making strides to strengthen our judiciary. Many of today’s nominees possess significant experience practicing civil and human rights law, and reflect the incredible diversity of our country. We are especially pleased to see nominees like Arianna Freeman, Tiffany Cartwright, Nusrat Choudhury, and Natasha Merle, all of whom have a deep commitment to equal justice and will be tremendous assets to the federal judiciary. The Senate must quickly move to confirm these superb nominees.”
