Udall Introduces Judicial Nominee Raymond Moore at U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing
Encourages Committee, Full Senate to Quickly Approve Nominee, Avoid Judicial Backlogs
Mark Udall introduced Raymond Moore to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee today, calling him "the right man for the job" and encouraging the Senate to quickly confirm him to prevent harmful judicial backlogs in the Colorado’s U.S. District Court.
"The President nominated Raymond Moore to fill a vacant seat on the Federal District Court of Colorado, which was recently declared a judicial emergency due to a very heavy caseload. Mr. Moore — who was recommended by a bipartisan judicial selection panel — stands ready and able to fill that vacancy," Udall said. "Based in part on Mr. Moore’s broad experience as a federal public defender for Colorado and Wyoming, I have no doubt that he will serve with distinction. Quite simply, he has the right temperament, commitment to service and belief in our nation’s judicial system, qualities that I know we all look for in a federal judge."

Udall and Senator Michael Bennet have urged the Senate to quickly confirm Moore, citing the needs to ensure that our courts help Colorado companies create jobs and expediently resolve legal issues. Moore would replace Chief Judge Wiley Y. Daniel, who became a senior judge on Jan. 1, 2013.
