SABA congratulates the Judge Amul Thapar on his confirmation to the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Today’s 52-44 vote means that the first South Asian Article III judge will become only the second South Asian judge to be on a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He ascended to the bench in 2008, after being nominated by President George W. Bush for the United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Kentucky by President George W. Bush.
