As announced last week by NAPABA and AAJC via press release, Hon. Sri Srinivsasan was confirmed as an appellate judge in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, making him the first South Asian Federal appellate judge and first Asian Pacific American judge in the D.C. Circuit. In the above photo, he is posing with the only other two APA judges in the Federal appellate courts, Hon. Jacqueline Nguyen of the Ninth Circuit, and Hon. Denny Chin of the Second Circuit.
