Robin S. Rosenbaum was confirmed by the U.S. Senate Tuesday as South Florida’s newest federal judge.
Rosenbaum, nominated in late November by President Barack Obama, replaces U.S. District Judge Alan S. Gold in Miami.
A federal magistrate in Fort Lauderdale since 2007, Rosenbaum also is a former South Florida federal prosecutor who clerked for federal appellate Judge Stanley Marcus. She received her bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and law degree from the University of Miami.
Rosenbaum will join two other newcomers to South Florida’s federal bench, Kathleen Williams and Robert N. Scola Jr.
The Miami vacancy of former U.S. District Judge Judge Adalberto Jordan, who in February was confirmed to serve on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, must still be filled.
