WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement after voting to confirm Captain Richard Federico, of Kansas, to be a United States Circuit Judge for the Tenth Circuit:

“Captain Richard Federico has faithfully served his country through a distinguished career in the Navy JAG Corps, serving as a prosecutor, defense attorney and as a military judge. Captain Federico is a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law, a fact I made sure to highlight when I introduced him and his family before the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation hearing. I appreciated the opportunity to meet with him in Kansas and Washington, D.C. to discuss his commitment to practice judicial restraint by relying on the Constitution and the relevant statutes Congress passed when presiding over cases. Congratulations to Judge Federico on his confirmation.”
