Longtime AAPI attorney nominated by Biden to fed bench

AsAmNews has learned that Jasmine Yoon will be nominated by President Biden to the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Virginia.

She currently serves as Vice President of Corporate Integrity at Capital One Financial.

Prior to that she worked as counsel to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville after spending six years as an attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Virginia.

So far, the U.S. Senate has confirmed a record 29 Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander judges nominated by the President. 20 of those nominees have been women. More AANHPI women have been confirmed under Biden than the three previous administrations combined.

Early in her career, Yoon worked as an associate from 2006 to 2009 at the White Collar and Regulatory Enforcement Group. She served as a law clerk for Judge James Cacheris on the U.S. District Court from 2009 to 2010.

She graduated with a J.D. from the University of Virginia where she also earned a B.A.
