LCV Statement on Senate Confirmation of Dale Ho

Jun 14, 2023

Washington, D.C. — In response to today’s U.S. Senate vote to confirm Dale Ho to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Director of Judiciary & Democracy Doug Lindner:

“Today’s long-awaited confirmation of Dale Ho is another critical step by President Biden and Senate Democrats to appoint a historic roster of personally and professionally diverse, highly qualified judges who work for the people, not special interests. Our environmental laws need judges who will enforce them and our courts need judges who believe in equal justice for all, not just the wealthy and powerful. Ho has a distinguished track record of fighting for a more fair and equitable democracy for all of our communities, especially those who are historically excluded. Now, the White House and Senate must continue their exceptional progress to fill every federal judicial vacancy.”
