On July 12, 2022, President Joe Biden nominated Judge Mia Roberts Perez to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to replace Judge Timothy J. Savage, who assumed senior status in March 2021. Judge Perez has served as a judge on the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas since her election in 2016. Prior to her judicial experience, Judge Perez worked in private practice and as a public defender. If confirmed, Judge Perez would be the second Latina judge and the first Asian American judge to serve on the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
