The White House has announced a new slate of judicial nominees for lifetime federal judgeships, including two picks for appellate court seats and two for trial courts.

Allison Jones Rushing, a partner in Williams & Connolly‘s Washington, D.C., office, was named Monday afternoon as the White House’s choice to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. A North Carolinian, her practice focuses on appellate and constitutional issues, as well as regulatory challenges. She previously clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, as well as Neil Gorsuch when he was a judge on the Tenth Circuit. She also clerked for former Chief Judge David Sentelle on the D.C. Circuit.
