President Obama nominates gay man to Federal Court of Appeals

Todd M. Hughes is Deputy Director of the Commercial Litigation Branch of the Civil Division at the United States Department of Justice, a position he has held since 2007. If confirmed, Mr. Hughes would become the first openly gay federal appeals court judge in U.S. history.

This represents President Obama's second nomination of a gay man to the Federal Circuit. The first, Edward DuMont withdrew his nomination in 2011 after it was stalled in the Senate.
