SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Nominations have been resubmitted by President Donald Trump for two federal judge positions in northern Indiana.
Holly Brady of Fort Wayne and Damon R. Leichty of South Bend were nominated a second time this past week after the Senate didn't vote on them during the congressional session that ended in early January.
Trump first nominated Brady last April and she advanced with the Senate Judiciary Committee's 11-10 vote in June. Brady is a partner in the Fort Wayne law firm of Haller & Colvin, where she handles employment and labor litigation representing employers.
Leichty was first nominated in July. Leichty is based at the Barnes & Thornburg law firm's South Bend office, representing manufacturers in product liability cases and other litigation.
They would replace judges who've retired.
