Warren, Markey Statement on Julie Rikelman’s Confirmation to U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
Washington, D.C. – United States Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Julie Rikelman to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit:
“We are thrilled that the Senate has voted to confirm Julie Rikelman to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Rikelman has a deep and unwavering commitment to the rule of law and our Constitution, informed by her own personal experience fleeing religious persecution with her family and moving to the United States. Rikelman has significant experience in both private practice and public interest, and for more than a decade, she has led efforts to protect the constitutional right to reproductive freedom.
“We were proud to recommend Rikelman as a candidate for the First Circuit, and we applaud President Biden for his commitment to building a federal judiciary with exceptional legal minds who bring diverse professional and personal experiences to the bench. Rikelman’s commitment to the Constitution and delivering equal justice under the law will be felt for generations to come.”
