Kara Farnandez Stoll (Federal Circuit)

Confirmed July 7, 2015

Kara Farnandez Stoll's Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals nomination was belatedly confirmed 95-0 on a July 7, 2015 Senate Floor vote.

Stoll had a hearing on March 11, 2015 and was favorably reported to the Floor without opposition by a Senate Judiciary Committee voice vote on April 23, 2015.

When Stoll was nominated, a number of attorneys reportedly said that she was an ideal pick for the court.

She was nominated on Nov. 12, 2014, with another unopposed Hispanic Circuit Court nominee, U.S. District Judge L. Felipe Restrepo, whose Third Circuit nomination hearing was finally held on June 10, 2015.
