Natasha Merle

President Biden nominated Natasha Merle to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on January 19, 2022, to the seat vacated by Judge Roslynn Mauskopf. A civil rights champion, Ms. Merle has dedicated most of her legal career to public interest law and public defense. Judges with such civil rights backgrounds remain severely underrepresented on our courts, making Merle a significant and historic nominee. She was confirmed on June 21, 2023.
