Judge Claire C. Cecchi '86 confirmed to U.S. District Court

In December, President Obama nominated Judge Claire Cecchi '86 to the U.S. District Court.  This week, the Senate confirmed Cecchi's nomination in a unanimous vote. 

Cecchi was born in New York City and after graduating from Barnard, attended Fordham University's law school. She served as a federal magistrate, handling motions and other proceedings, since 2006. Prior to that, she worked for 14 years in private practice, primarily as a civil litigator, and had been assistant corporate counsel for New York City.

Congratulations, Judge Cecchi!
