Warner & Kaine Applaud Senate Confirmation of Giles and Nachmanoff for Eastern District Judicial Vacancies

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine issued the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Ms. Patricia Tolliver Giles and U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael S. Nachmanoff for the two judicial vacancies in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division:

"We are pleased that the Senate voted to confirm Ms. Patricia Tolliver Giles and Judge Michael Nachmanoff to be U.S. District Court Judges in the Eastern District of Virginia. We were proud to recommend both to the President for appointment to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and are confident they will serve the Commonwealth and the country with distinction."

Senators Warner and Kaine have been supporters of both nominees. In April, the Senators sent a letter to President Biden recommending Ms. Tolliver Giles and U.S. Magistrate Judge Nachmanoff for the vacancy in the Alexandria Division of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia following Judge Liam O'Grady's decision to take senior status. Shortly thereafter, another vacancy opened in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to succeed Judge Anthony Trenga, who assumed senior status June 1, 2021.
