WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today introduced Ms. Holly Teeter of Lenexa, Kan., as the Senate Judiciary Committee considered her nomination as a federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.
“It’s a real pleasure and honor to be here in support of Holly Teeter,” said Sen. Moran. “Her capabilities, her intellect, her character, are at the highest levels. She will be a tremendous trial judge who hears the facts and makes a decision on the case based upon the circumstances and the law. This committee ought to feel very comfortable in supporting her nomination. This judgeship has been vacant in Kansas for a very long time and we are anxious to have justice dispensed by Judge Holly Teeter.”
If confirmed by the Senate, Teeter, a University of Kansas School of Law graduate, will join the United States District Court for the District of Kansas with a lifetime appointment. The U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas is a federal trial court that processes civil and criminal cases that come under federal jurisdiction. The District of Kansas covers the full state of Kansas.
