Senate to vote on nomination of Eumi Lee to U.S. District Court

After some delays, the U.S. Senate will vote next week on President Joe Biden’s nomination of Eumi K. Lee.

Biden nominated Lee in July 2023. A confirmation process was initially delayed in late October 2023, after California Senator Alex Padilla came out with COVID-19 and could not appear in person for the Senate Judiciary Committee vote, SFist reports. The nomination finally made it out of committee in November.

Today Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) filed cloture on Lee’s nomination, ending debate and calling for a vote.

Since 2018, Lee has served as a judge on the Superior Court of California in Alameda County. From 2005 to 2018 she was a Clinical Professor of Law at the University of California College of the Law, San Francisco. She received her B.A. from Pomona College and her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
