Blumenthal, Murphy Statement On Confirmation Of Jeff Meyer

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) issued the following statement after the Senate confirmed Connecticut lawyer Jeff Meyer to a U.S. District Court judgeship in the state by a vote of 91-2:
“A consummate professional, Jeff Meyer is truly a lawyer’s lawyer and a prosecutor’s prosecutor – and now he will be a judge’s judge. He has the intelligence and instinct to make the crucial and difficult decisions required of federal trial judges – whether judging the credibility of a witness on the stand or sentencing an individual who has broken the law under extenuating circumstances. Knowing Jeff Meyer’s record and work ethic, we were very proud to support his nomination. Justice will be served now that Jeff Meyer is on the federal bench.”
