President Donald Trump has renominated 51 people for district and appeals court seats on the federal bench.
The slate includes Judge J.P. Boulee of the DeKalb County Superior Court, whom Trump tapped last year for an opening on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The other picks are for district courts in Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Texas, New York and Pennsylvania and nominees for the Ninth, Second, Third and D.C. circuits.
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal appointed Boulee to the DeKalb County Superior Court bench in 2015. Previously, Boulee spent 14 years in private practice with Jones Day and served four years in the U.S. Army’s Judge Advocate General Corps.
Others renominated are Wendy Vitter for the Eastern District of Louisiana, Allison Jones Rushing for the Fourth Circuit, Neomi Rao for the D.C. Circuit, and Chad Readler and Eric Murphy for the Sixth Circuit.
