WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman James Comer released the following statement on President Trump’s nomination of Paducah Native Benjamin Beaton to serve as district judge for the Western District of Kentucky.
“I want to congratulate Paducah native Benjamin Beaton for achieving this high honor of a nomination to serve as district judge for the Western District of Kentucky. His experience studying and litigating complex legal issues, along with clerking for the U.S. Supreme Court, positions him perfectly to serve on the federal bench.
President Trump has put his mark on the federal judiciary by nominating hardworking, qualified constitutionalists to judgeships. But he has gone a step further by putting extraordinarily talented Kentuckians at the front of the line to uphold the rule of law and shape our nation’s judiciary for years to come. If Benjamin’s successful career thus far is any indication, he will do an outstanding job in this role.”
