CAPAC Chair Statement on Nomination of Roopali Desai to the U.S Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

 CAPAC Chair Statement on Nomination of Roopali Desai to the U.S Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

 

Washington, D.C. – Today, President Biden nominated Roopali Desai to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Upon confirmation, Desai would be the first South Asian American to serve as appellate judge on the Ninth Circuit. Rep. Judy Chu, Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), issued the following statement:

 

“I was excited to learn of Roopali Desai’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. From her early work with survivors of domestic and family violence to, most recently, fighting back against election misinformation and false claims concerning the 2020 presidential election in Arizona, she has shown tremendous resiliency, dedication and compassion. I also want to applaud President Biden for continuing to act on his promise of nominating highly qualified and diverse candidates. Ms. Desai’s nomination marks a significant step forward in further diversifying the bench – and upon her confirmation, she will become the first South Asian American to serve on the Ninth Circuit as an appellate judge.”
