Senate Confirms Diane Humetewa, the First Native American Female Federal Judge

Though not WLG news, we, along with the rest of the civil rights community, celebrate the nomination and confirmation of Hopi citizen Diane Humetewa, who will become the first Native American female to serve as an Article III Judge.  In a rare moment of bipartisanship, Humetewa was confirmed 96 to 0 to serve as a District Court Judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.
