By a 50-44 vote, the United States Senate yesterday confirmed Cindy Chung for a seat on the Third Circuit. Those voting in favor included three Republicans, along with Democrats. Ms. Chung thus becomes the first Asian-American to sit on the Third Circuit. Her background was discussed here.
This is the third nomination to the Third Circuit by President Biden, and the third confirmation of his nominee by the Senate. As discussed here, with the upcoming retirement of Judge Greenaway, President Biden will get a fourth opportunity later this year.
Welcome, Judge Chung!
