Action Alert: Tell Sen. Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell to vote on Judge Edward M. Chen's nomination  



August 2, 2010

Time is Running Out: Tell Senator Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell to vote on Judge Edward M. Chen's Nomination

The Senate is now considering Magistrate Judge Edward M. Chen for the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. He has served as a magistrate judge for 9 years and has recently been appointed for another 8 year term. If confirmed, Judge Chen would be the first Asian Pacific American Article III judge to serve in San Francisco.

Judge Chen has a reputation as a balanced, fair, and unbiased jurist based on his nine year record as a judge and enjoys broad support from the judiciary, the litigation bar and legal community, and law enforcement. Judge Chen was rated "Unanimously Well Qualified" by the American Bar Association.  

August 6th will mark the first anniversary since President Obama's nomination of of Judge Edward Chen to the U.S. District Court. His confirmation has been delayed longer than any other judicial nominee.  

The Congressional August recess is quickly approaching; we cannot afford to have Judge Chen’s confirmation delayed any longer. TAKE ACTION NOW by calling or writing to Senator Harry Reid (NV) and Senator Mitch McConnell (KY) to vote for Judge Edward Chen's confirmation before the August recess.
