Palm Beach Judge Robin Rosenberg nominated for federal court post

President Barack Obama on Wednesday nominated Palm Beach Circuit Judge Robin L. Rosenberg to the federal bench in the Southern District of Florida.

“Judge Rosenberg has a long and impressive record of service, and I am confident she will serve on the federal bench with distinction,” Obama said in a statement.

She has been a circuit judge since 2007, and previously worked in her own law firm, as general counsel at Slim-Fast Foods Co., as a partner at Holland & Knight and as an assistant city attorney for West Palm Beach. She had also served as a trial attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and worked at a nonprofit organization in the Czech Republic.

Rosenberg began her career as a law clerk to U.S. District Judge James C. Paine after receiving her law degree from Duke University in 1989 and her B.A. from Princeton University in 1983.

Rosenberg, if confirmed by the Senate, will fill the vacancy left by former U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan, who was elevated to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.
