WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced the Honorable Nancy Moritz during the U.S. Senate Judiciary Hearing as the nominee to the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
“Justice Moritz comes before the committee highly qualified and greatly prepared as the result of a distinguished legal career both in private and public practice,” Sen. Moran said. “Nancy was raised in the small Kansas town of Tipton. I know the people of Tipton well; I have witnessed their character, kindness, work ethic, and a genuine concern for others. I am confident this sense of community has been instilled in our nominee and that her service on the Tenth Circuit will be guided by the values we hold dear in Kansas, including empathy for others and respect for the rule of law.”
If approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee and passed by the full 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.
