The U.S. Senate has voted to confirm Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen to the federal sixth circuit court of appeals.

Governor Rick Snyder released a statement after the announcement stating, “Joan has served on the Michigan Supreme Court with great honor and distinction. While we are sad to see her leave the Court, I truly appreciate her dedicated work on the bench for the past two years and her devotion to upholding the rule of law. I’m proud that President Trump chose someone from Michigan to serve in this important role.”
