US Senate Expected To Confirm First Woman Justice To Virginia’s Eastern District Court

The United States Senate is poised to confirm the first woman justice in the US District Court for Eastern Virginia. The Senate is expected to confirm Magistrate Judge Hannah Lauck to one of the nation’s highest profile district courts. Carl Tobias, Law Professor at the University of Richmond, says the appointment can’t come soon enough as Judge James Spencer assumes senior status after 27 years and she is well qualified. The US District Judge of Eastern Virginia is known  for its speedy disposition and  its sometimes very high profile cases.
