Mark Bennett, the former Hawaii attorney general, was confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Tuesday, making him the first appointee of President Donald Trump to be seated on the nation’s largest federal appellate court.

Bennett, who served as the state’s attorney general from 2003 to 2010, practiced complex civil and appellate litigation at Honolulu law firm Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher after leaving office. He fills the seat vacated when Ninth Circuit Judge Richard Clifton, who sits in Honolulu, took senior status at the end of 2016.
