BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — For the first time ever there's a woman on the Federal Court bench in Baton Rouge.
The senate confirmed Judge Shelly Dick yesterday. She was originally nominated by President Obama back in April 2012.
The picture attached to this story shows her swearing in ceremony on Thursday, May 9 before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Dick is a Baton Rouge attorney. She says her plan is to take her place on the bench later this month.
