US District Court judge tapped for appeals court

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - President Barack Obama has nominated a federal judge from Atlanta to serve in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

White House officials said in a statement Thursday that U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of Georgia, Julie E. Carnes, has been nominated to serve in the court of appeals.

Officials say Carnes has served as a federal judge in Georgia since 1992, and has been the District Court's chief judge since 2009.

Officials say Carnes was born and raised in Atlanta, graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1975, and served on the editorial board of the Georgia Law Review.

White House officials say Carnes began her legal career as a clerk for a U.S. Court of Appeals judge in 1975.
