florence pan nominated to d.c. superior court

Last month, we heard that Florence Pan, Deputy Chief of the Appellate Section in the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia, had made the short list to fill a judicial vacancy on the D.C. Superior Court. Guess what? She got the job.

This week, President Obama announced his plans to nominate Florence Pan and Marisa Demeo to be Associate Judges in the D.C. Superior Court: Obama names nominations for DC Superior Court.

If I'm not mistaken, this actually make Pan the first ever Asian American judge in the D.C. Superior Court. Here's the official press release from the White House: President Obama Announces Marisa J. Demeo and Florence Y. Pan for DC Superior Court.
