WASHINGTON, DC – OCA, a national organization dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs), is pleased to congratulate Miranda Mai Du on her confirmation as Nevada’s newest and first APA to serve as an Article III judge in the United States District Court after a 59-39 vote in the Senate. 

"We applaud Judge Du’s recent appointment approval as a District Court judge of Nevada,” said Tom Hayashi, Executive Director of OCA. "Judge Du is a well-qualified and proven legal scholar practitioner and will continue to make our community proud.” 

Born in Vietnam, Judge Du was forced to seek asylum in Malaysia at the age of 9. After spending a year in Malaysian refugee camps, she was granted asylum in the United States and moved to Louisiana. She went on to graduate from the University of California-Davis and attended law school from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, practicing at a Reno firm for almost two decades with integrity and fairness. Judge Du’s story exemplifies the spirit and perseverance of APAs and brings new leadership to the community. 

"OCA’s mission is to embrace the hopes and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans,” said OCA National President, Ken Lee. "Judge Du’s personal story of struggle and triumph truly embodies the spirit of the APA community and we are proud to support her.”  

Duy Nguyen, OCA Vice President of Economic Development expressed similar sentiments in his personal relationship with Judge Du.

"Nevada's APA community is overjoyed with the historical confirmation of (Judge) Miranda Du as the first APA appointed to the federal bench in our state. (Judge) Du is a well-respected public servant with strong integrity and a stellar record of giving-back in our community,” said Duy Nguyen, OCA Vice President of Economic Development. "Her career accomplishments as an attorney and her future role as a federal judge is an incredible asset to the judicial system and our country.”

OCA is pleased with the leadership of the Senate and Obama administration in their nomination and continued support of APAs in the United States court system. It is with the utmost importance that court judges represent a diverse community as Judge Du’s appointment is essential in a rapidly growing community. We continue to encourage the confirmations of Judge Jacqueline Nguyen for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and John Lee for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
