Obama nominates Robin Rosenbaum to federal bench

The White House announced Wednesday that the president is nominating Judge Robin S. Rosenbaum to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Rosenbaum has served as a U.S. magistrate judge for the Southern District of Florida since 2007. 

From 1998 until her appointment to the bench, Rosenbaum was an assistant U.S. Attorney in the same district, where she served as chief of the economic crimes section in the Fort Lauderdale office beginning in 2002. Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s office, Rosenbaum clerked for Judge Stanley Marcus on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in 1998. She worked as a litigation associate at Holland & Knight from 1996 to 1997, and served as staff counsel at the Office of the Independent Counsel in Washington D.C. from 1995 to 1996. 

She began her legal career as a trial attorney at the Federal Programs Branch of the U.S. Department of Justice from 1991 to 1995. She received her J.D. magna cum laude in 1991 from the University of Miami School of Law and her B.A. in 1988 from Cornell University.

"Throughout their careers, these nominees have displayed unwavering commitment to justice and integrity," President Barack Obama said of Rosenbaum and two other nominees announced Wednesday. "Their records of service to the public and the legal profession are distinguished and impressive and I am confident that they will serve the American people well from the United States District Court bench. I am honored to nominate them today."
