On Monday, the White House announced that President Biden officially transmitted to the United States Senate the nomination of Tiffany P. Cunningham to become a Circuit Judge of the Federal Circuit. The Senate, in turn, referred the nomination to its Committee on the Judiciary.

As we previously reported, if confirmed, Cunningham will be the first African American to serve as a judge on the Federal Circuit.

A confirmation hearing has not yet been scheduled, but we plan to report on related developments.
