The U.S. Senate Thursday unanimously confirmed Judge Denny Chin to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, as Democrats continued to inch through a backlog of lower-court judicial nominees.
Chin will be elevated from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where he drew national attention for sentencing financier Bernard Madoff to 150 years in prison for orchestrating a massive Ponzi scheme. Born in Hong Kong, Chin will be the only active Asian-American judge on a federal appellate court.
