Attorney Caroline Gentry selected as member of commission for judicial vacancy

Attorney Caroline Gentry was recently named as member of the bipartisan judicial advisory commission that will assist Senators Portman and Brown in identifying the best candidates to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. 

From the official press release

The bipartisan advisory commission process was first established by Senator Brown and former U.S. Senator George Voinovich (R-OH), and Portman and Brown have carried on the tradition.  The senators are confident that the commissioners they are announcing today will provide informed and constructive counsel in choosing Ohio’s federal judges. The President of the United States nominates U.S. district court judges taking into account recommendations from U.S. senators. Nominees must then be confirmed by the full U.S. Senate. Federal district courts are general trial courts that hear both civil and criminal cases."
