Scott M. Matheson, Jr. - CONFIRMED
United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
On March 3, 2010, President Obama nominated Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. In announcing the nomination, Obama said that Matheson’s “legal and academic credentials are impressive and his commitment to judicial integrity is unwavering.” Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said that he was “pleased” with the nomination and that he has “known Scott a long time, and he is a capable, bright attorney whose experience has prepared him for judicial service.” Hatch also said that he would help “shepherd” Matheson through the confirmation process. If confirmed, Matheson would fill oneof two Tenth Circuit seats historically filled by Utahns.
