President Biden Nominates Andre B. Mathis to the Sixth Circuit

Yesterday, President Biden nominated Memphis, Tennessee litigator Andre B. Mathis to the Sixth Circuit, filling the seat of Judge Bernice B. Donald, who announced in May that she will assume senior status upon the confirmation of her replacement.

Mathis was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Memphis in 2003, and graduated cum laude from that university’s Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law in 2007.  He is President Biden’s first nominee to the Sixth Circuit, and his confirmation would leave no vacancies on the Court.
