☷President Biden Names Seventeenth Round of Judicial Nominees

White House
| 19| 2
   The President is announcing five new federal judicial nominees , all of whom are extraordinarily qualified , experienced , and devoted to the rule of law and our Constitution .

This is President Biden’s seventeenth round of nominees for federal judicial positions and his fifth slate of nominations in 2022 , bringing the number of announced federal judicial nominees to 95 .
