OU Assistant Dean nominated for Federal Court position


President Donald Trump is nominating an Oklahoma for a job in a federal court.

On Monday, the White House announced ten people that the President wants in federal courts.

Trump nominated Scott Palk to be the U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Oklahoma. Palk is currently the Assistant Dean for Students at the OU School of Law.

Both Oklahoma Senators Jim Inhofe and James Lankford have supported Palk's nomination.

“Scott is a great candidate to serve as a federal judge for the US District Court for Oklahoma because of his dedication to uphold the rule of law,” said Lankford. “Scott’s years of work in Oklahoma make him exceptionally qualified to serve as one of Oklahoma's federal judges, and I applaud President Trump for nominating a strong candidate that will represent our state and nation well.”

“By nominating Scott Palk to serve on the Federal District Court, President Trump is upholding his campaign promise to nominate to the federal bench principled jurists who are committed to enforcing the Constitution’s limits on federal power,” Inhofe said.
