Congresswoman Stacey E. Plaskett Releases Statement on U.S. Senate's Vote to Confirm Judge Robert A. Molloy's Appointment to U.S. District Judge
Congresswoman Stacey E. Plaskett released the following statement regarding Judge Robert A. Molloy's appointment to serve as a U.S. District Judge by the United States Senate:
"This afternoon, the United States Senate voted (97-0) to confirm Judge Robert A. Molloy's nomination to serve as a District Judge for the District Court of the Virgin Islands. Judge Molloy has served the Virgin Islands community skillfully and in good faith for much of his legal career; first clerking for Judge Raymond Finch on the U.S. District Court of the Virgin Islands, then as Assistant Attorney General, and finally serving as a Judge in the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands. His tremendous work ethic and thoughtfulness is known by the entire legal community.
"I was honored to send Judge Molloy's nomination to the White House and in May of this year, President Trump announced his nomination of Judge Molloy to serve as our territory's United States District Judge. President Trump's appointment and the U.S. Senate's eventual confirmation of Judge Molloy are evidence of the possibility of bi-partisan collaboration and successful joint efforts between the parties.
"I highly commend U.S. District Judge Robert A. Molloy for his work and efforts in reaching this milestone. My office and I are looking forward to a successful and productive tenure as he takes on the duties that await him in this new role."
