Ex-pros­e­cu­tor is choice for South Texas bench

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

A Mex­i­can-born for­mer fed­eral pros­e­cu­tor has been nom­i­nated for a U.S. District Court va­cancy in South Texas. Pres­i­dent Barack Obama nom­i­nated Ma­rina Gar­cia Mar­molejo to a U.S. District Court va­cancy in the South­ern District of Texas. The va­cancy was left by the res­ig­na­tion of U.S. District Judge Sa­muel Kent of Galve­ston. The U.S. Se­nate must con­firm nom­i­na­tion of the 39-year-old nat­u­ral­ized Nuevo Laredo, Ta­mauli­pas, na­tive, but Texas’ GOP sen­a­tors, Kay Bai­ley Hutchi­son and John Cornyn, praised the choice.
