Joan Larsen

Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals
Nominated May 8, 2017

On May 8, 2017, President Trump nominated Joan Larsen to an indefinite future judicial vacancy to replace Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge David McKeague, who announced that he will remain an active full-time judge until his successor is confirmed.

In contrast, at the time of the nomination, there were more than 120 current judicial vacancies, including 20 Circuit Courts of Appeal vacant judgeships; the U.S. Courts declared that 49 of the total, including 14 current Circuit vacancies were judicial emergencies.
