WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBC33) - A New Orleans attorney has received a judicial nomination from the president.

President Barack Obama has nominated Nannette Jolivette-Brown to become a U.S. District Judge for New Orleans.

Jolivette-Brown will be the first African-American woman to gain this honor in the district if she is approved by the Senate.

She was recommended by Senator Mary Landrieu to the president through a letter. Landrieu wrote, “Attorney Jolivette-Brown possesses an outstanding working knowledge of the federal courts and is an authority on matters related to Environmental Law.”

Landrieu also stated, “Jolivette-Brown appears to have a very even disposition that is perfectly suited to become a model judge of whom we all can be proud.”
