Washington sources have stated that US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he is nominating Indian-American federal judge Amul Thapar for elevation to an appeals court, the second highest level of the US judiciary. It was stated that appeals courts are just below the Supreme Court. Thapar was on the shortlist of Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court that was announced during last year’s election campaign.



Describing him as “the son of Indian-American immigrants”, and the first federal district judge of South Asian descent, the White House said that if confirmed by the Senate, Thapar will join the bench of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers the two important states of Michigan and Ohio, in addition to Kentucky and Tennessee.

Thapar, 47, will be the second person from the community at the appellate court level, joining Judge Sri Srinivasan, who was appointed by the then President Barack Obama to the powerful bench that covers Washington. Thapar is currently a federal judge in Kentucky, appointed by the then President George W. Bush in 2007.



The likelihood of Thapar’s confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate is very strong and he has the strong backing of the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has described him as “a friend.” There are likely to be other vacancies on the bench where there are three judges over the age of 77. Should a vacancy arise, Thapar is a stronger contender to be on the short list of candidates for the vacancy.
