On Wednesday March 28, NAPABA and The Asian American Justice Center reported:
Today, the Senate voted to confirm Miranda Mai Du to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. Judge Du is the first-ever Asian Pacific American to serve as an Article III judge in Nevada.
“We congratulate Judge Du on her confirmation, and thank Senator Reid for both suggesting her name to President Obama and scheduling her confirmation vote,” said Nimesh M. Patel, president of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). “Judge Du is a nominee with a wealth of experiences and qualifications. She also has an inspiring life story, and will add much needed diversity of perspective on the federal court in Nevada.”
