@PDSDC staff attorney Sherry Trafford nominated for Superior Court judgeship.

Sherry Moore Trafford, a well-regarded staff attorney in the Mental Health Division of the Public Defender Service, has been nominated by President Obama to serve as a judge of the D.C. Superior Court. Resent studies have found that up to 40% of those involved in the criminal justice system suffer from mental health disorders. Sherry’s in mental health and juvenile would be a great addition to the bench.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/11/21/president-obama-nominates-two-serve-superior-court-district-columbia

This is a post-filibuster nominee. Hoping the Senate filibuster rule change clears the backlog of nominations.
