A SALUTE TO COMMON DECENCY AND EQUALITY: Alison Nathan Confirmed As Federal Judge Despite Strong GOP Opposition

Alison Nathan, Senate approved to serve the  Federal Court
Without a single vote from any Republican, today the U.S. Senate narrowly approved the nomination of Alison Nathan to the federal bench.

"The President welcomes the confirmation of Alison Nathan. She will serve the American people well from the District Court bench." Five members of the Democratic caucus did not vote for Nathan's nomination, and no Republicans voted for it. Less than three months ago, U.S. District Court Judge J. Paul Oeken, was confirmed with the support of 28 Republicans. Oetken also sits on the Southern District of New York bench and currently is the only out gay male judge serving in one of the lifetime tenure positions in the federal judiciary...¨  HERE
