WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement after the United States Senate confirmed the Honorable Nancy Moritz of Topeka, Kan., to serve as a federal judge for the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals:
“Justice Moritz joins the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court well prepared as the result of a distinguished legal career both in private and public practice, with 10 years of experience as a judge, including more than three as a justice on the Kansas Supreme Court,” Sen. Moran said. “In addition to her legal experience, Nancy was raised in the close-knit Kansas town of Tipton. I know the people of Tipton well, and I am confident Nancy’s service on the Tenth Circuit will be guided by the values we hold in Kansas, including empathy for others and respect for the rule of law.”
After today’s confirmation by the United States Senate, Moritz will join the Tenth Circuit with a lifetime appointment. The Denver-based Tenth Circuit Court reviews cases from Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming.
