Senator Carper Comments on Senate Confirmation of D.C. Superior Court Associate Judges

WASHINGTON – Today, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), ranking member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released a statement following the Senate’s unanimous confirmation of Robert A. Salerno and Darlene M. Soltys to be Associate Judges, D.C. Superior Court.

“Today, the Senate did the right thing and quickly approved these two well-qualified, non-controversial nominees for the District of Columbia Superior Court. Ms. Soltys and Mr. Salerno’s expertise and experience have prepared them well to serve the District’s Superior Court and its residents. I am confident they are ready to hit the ground running and get to work. Today’s confirmations make progress in restoring the Court’s bench which still suffers from numerous vacancies. I hope my colleagues continue to consider and confirm D.C. judicial nominees, including the four nominees currently pending before our committee, in a timely manner.”
