Senator Boxer: Senate Approves Bernal Nomination
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Today the Senate confirmed Jesus Bernal to serve on the U.S. District Court in Riverside. I recommended him to President Obama, who nominated him in April. To read more, please click here.
With today’s vote, Mr. Bernal will become the only Latino District Court judge serving the Central District’s Eastern Division, which includes Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. I am confident that his extensive experience handling complex criminal and civil cases will make him an outstanding addition to the federal bench.
