The U.S. Senate on Tuesday confirmed Palm Beach Circuit Judge Robin L. Rosenberg to the federal bench.

She is the third new judge confirmed this summer for the Southern District of Florida bench. Former Miami-Dade Circuit Judges Darrin Gayles and Beth Bloom were confirmed in recent weeks.

Rosenberg will sit at the new courthouse in Fort Pierce. She fills the seat vacated by former U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan, who was elevated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

Rosenberg established her own law firm in 2002 with her husband, Michael McAuliffe. The firm disbanded when McAuliffe became Palm Beach state attorney, and Rosenberg was elected without opposition in November 2006.

McAuliffe, who did not seek re-election in 2012, became general counsel at energy recycler Oxbow Carbon LLC.
