Senate Confirms Veronica Rossman To The Tenth Circuit Court Of Appeals

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Veronica Rossman’s nomination to serve on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals by a bipartisan vote of 50-42.  U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement regarding Ms. Rossman’s confirmation: 

“With her extensive appellate experience in both private practice and as a federal public defender, Ms. Rossman will be an outstanding addition to the Tenth Circuit.  As I have said many times: former public defenders, like Ms. Rossman, offer a crucial perspective that is often underrepresented within our federal judiciary.  She is well prepared to serve on the Tenth Circuit, and I’m pleased my colleagues supported her nomination.” 

In July, Ms. Rossman was advanced out of Committee with a bipartisan vote of 12-10.
