The Indianapolis Bar Association has joined with the Indiana State Bar Association in support of the nomination of U.S. Magistrate Judge Doris L. Pryor to serve as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit. In a letter submitted to United States Sen. Richard Durbin, chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary, and U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, ranking member of the committee, the associations quote uniform positive support among the numerous members consulted. They further highlight support from leaders of both organizations’ Appellate Practice Sections.
IndyBar President Alicia Gooden and ISBA President Clayton Miller state, “In terms of her judgment, temperament, and work ethic; Judge Pryor will make an excellent addition to the Seventh Circuit.” They concluded, “We strongly support her nomination.”
Judge Pryor was nominated by President Joe Biden in May. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Judge Pryor would fill the vacancy being created by the retirement of Judge David F. Hamilton.•
