Sen. Moran Applauds Progress on Nomination of Holly Lou Teeter to be Federal District Court Judge for District of Kansas
Jan 18 2018
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today applauded the Senate Judiciary Committee’s unanimous vote in favor of Ms. Holly Teeter of Lenexa, Kan., to serve as a federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. Sen. Moran supported her nomination in 2017, introducing her to the Senate Judiciary Committee for her confirmation hearing and sharing the recommendations of Ms. Teeter’s colleagues with Judiciary Committee members.
“Ms. Teeter is exceedingly qualified to serve Kansans as a federal judge,” said Sen. Moran. “Her bright legal mind, wide variety of legal experiences and exemplary temperament are widely recognized by her colleagues. The bipartisan support she received from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee during her hearing last year make it clear that she is an exceptional choice. Additionally, the judgeship Ms. Teeter has been nominated for has been vacant for longer than many other seats in the nation, and Kansans are eager to see the role filled. I am pleased my Senate Judiciary Committee colleagues have acted swiftly on her nomination and I hope the full Senate will soon have the chance to confirm Ms. 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.
