Paul William Grimm was confirmed to be U.S. district judge for Maryland.
“I ask for civic engagement in Maryland so [judicial nominees are] familiar with the life and times of those they adjudicate over,” Mikulski said on the floor Monday. “Judge Grimm does exactly that. He brings the right hard-working values to the bench.”
Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) voted against Grimm's confirmation.
