WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today spoke on the Senate floor after the confirmation of Mr. John W. Broomes of Wichita to serve as a District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas.
“John Broomes is a highly-qualified and well-respected attorney who has the mentality, intellect and legal mind required for those who receive a lifetime appointment to the federal bench,” said Sen. Moran. “Outside of the courtroom, Mr. Broomes has served our nation as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy Submarine Force, where he earned the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal and three Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals – further exemplifying his dedication to his fellow Kansans and Americans. Judges with lifetime appointments must exhibit sound principles in order to best serve Kansas and the country, and John Broomes certainly meets these requirements.”
Mr. Broomes will serve as a District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas. He earned his J.D. at Washburn University School of Law, where he graduated first in his class.
