Alliance for Justice President Rakim H.D. Brooks applauded the Sanchez’ confirmation following the Senate vote. He said Sanchez is the second Latino judge confirmed to the Ninth Circuit since 2011.
“Judge Sanchez is an incredibly capable jurist who has spent his career advocating on behalf of people who need access to equal justice under the law the most. Whether it was representing disadvantaged and indigent clients or spearheading the reduction of California’s unconstitutionally large prison population, Judge Sanchez is a proven advocate for marginalized communities.”
