Trump Nominates Thapar to Sixth Circuit

Yesterday, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Judge Amul Thapar to one of two open seats on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. For Bench Memos readers, this should come as no surprise. Judge Thapar is currently a federal district court judge in Kentucky, and previously served as a federal prosecutor. His nomination was urged by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
