Warner & Kaine Now Accepting Applications for U.S. District Judge, Eastern District of Virginia

Warner and Tim Kaine are now accepting applications for the position of United States District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Virginia to succeed United States District Court Judge John A. Gibney, Jr., who will assume senior status effective November 1, 2021.
An independent panel of lawyers assembled by the Senators will review applications and interview qualified individuals. The Senators will then use those recommendations, as well as input from experts, practitioners, and bar associations from around the Commonwealth, as they consider potential nominees to recommend to the President. The White House will then nominate an individual whose nomination is subject to confirmation by the full Senate.
Interested applicants should visit Senator Kaine’s website for application instructions. The application period will close July 19, 2021.
