Muslim Woman

Choudhury, 44, is the Roger Pascal Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, where she leads a team that works to advance civil rights and liberties.

Hawzah News Agency –US President Joe Biden’s ambition to diversify the US court continues. He has nominated the first Muslim woman in the United States to serve as a federal judge. Nusrat Jahan Choudhury, a Bangladeshi-American, has been nominated by Biden. If confirmed, she will be the second Muslim judge to serve on the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Choudhury, 44, is the Roger Pascal Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, where she leads a team that works to advance civil rights and liberties. Prior to this position, she was the Deputy Director of the ACLU’s national Racial Justice Program, where she spearheaded efforts to fight racial profiling and illegal stop-and-frisk, as well as the targeting of persons of color for surveillance without proof of wrongdoing.

She earned her law degree from Yale Law School in 2006, as well as a master’s degree in public administration from Princeton University and a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University.

Approximately 75% of President Biden’s nominations have been women, with nearly 65% being individuals of color. In contrast, Trump’s judges were mainly white (83%) and male (76%), and eight nominees were designated “Not Qualified” by the American Bar Association (ABA). Judicial nominees who are labeled “Not Qualified” are judged to be weak in character, professional competence, or judicial temperament. None of President Biden’s candidates, on the other hand, have received this rating.
