APABA Statement on the Nomination of Judge Lucy H. Koh to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA - Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County (APABA) President Arnold Lee issued the following statement on President Joe Biden's nomination of Judge Lucy H. Koh to the U.S. Court of Appeals:

"On behalf of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County, we applaud President Joe Biden's nomination of the Honorable Lucy H. Koh, U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of California, to serve as Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

"Judge Koh's extensive legal experience embodies her exceptional commitment to public service, judicial leadership, and justice under law, including the U.S. District Court and California Superior Court, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, and in private practice. If confirmed, Judge Koh will become the first Korean American woman and the third Asian American woman to serve on a federal appeals court.

"Earlier this year, APABA proudly voted to endorse Judge Koh's nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals. 

"We thank President Biden and his Administration for the ongoing commitment to diversifying the federal government to reflect the vibrant diversity of our nation today.

"APABA congratulates Judge Koh on her nomination. We look forward to supporting her through the confirmation process and her continued leadership for the federal judiciary.
