STATEMENT OF LT. GOVERNOR MOLLY GRAY ON THE NOMINATION OF JUSTICE BETH ROBINSON TO THE U.S. COURT OF APPEALS

Montpelier, Vt - Today, Lt. Governor Gray joined state leaders in applauding President Joe Biden’s nomination of VT Supreme Court Justice Beth Robinson to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Gray released the following statement:  

“The nomination of Justice Beth Robinson is a historic step by President Biden to build a judicial system that represents all of us.  

For me, and so many Vermont women in the legal profession, Justice Robinson has been a trailblazer and role model. She has been a champion for civil rights and marriage equality and will serve our country, and justice system, well.  

I cannot imagine a better replacement for my dear friend and mentor the late Judge Peter W. Hall who carried on Vermont’s tradition and legacy of fairness, judicial independence, and integrity on the Court. I look forward to Justice Robinson’s confirmation and urge the United States Senate to act with haste.”
