Alexandria, Louisiana Attorney Nominated to Federal Bench

President Barack Obama nominated former Louisiana State Bar Association President Elizabeth Erny Foote to serve as district judge on the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. This brings the total number of pending federal district court nominees awaiting Senate approval in Louisiana to two. The other nominee is pending in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana, where the case load has become so high that approximately 100 cases were recently transferred to a district judge in the Western District of Louisiana. Louisiana’s republican senator recently announced that he would not block the Louisiana nominees.
