Three nominations made for Indiana District Courts
Indiana: Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana has announced two nominations to the Southern District of Indiana and one to the Northern District of Indiana. He said that President Obama has accepted the recommendation, and expects a formal announcement from the President when the Senate reconvenes after the 2010 winter recess.
The nominees are:
- Tanya Walton Pratt, Southern District
- Jane Magnus-Stinson, Southern District
- Jon E. DeGuilio, Northern District
If approved, Pratt would be the first African-American to serve the Southern District of Indiana, and she and Magnus-Stinson would double the number of women to serve the federal courts in Indiana history.
