President Bush on Tuesday nominated two individuals to replace retiring jurists on federal courts in the Washington area.

Bush nominated Jennifer M. Anderson for a 15-year term as associate judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, replacing Steffen W. Graae. Anderson, who was born in Dublin, Ireland, currently is chief of the homicide and major crimes section of the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia. In the late 1990s she was a special prosecutor in the civil rights division of the Justice Department.
