OKLAHOMA CITY – President Barack Obama today nominated U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert E. Bacharach to serve on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Bacharach received a unanimous approval from the American Bar Association as well as the support of his home state senators in Oklahoma and should be confirmed as quickly as possible, said Oklahomans for a Fair Judiciary.
“Judge Bacharach’s background is outstanding and there is no reason for the Senate to delay in moving his nomination forward,” said Jennifer Able, executive director of Oklahomans for a Fair Judiciary. “The 10th Circuit hears cases on every issue – from justice for the poor, to social security appeals, to basic civil rights protections. The longer the Senate stalls in the process to confirm Judge Bacharach, the longer justice will be denied and fewer Americans will receive their day in court.”
