Young, Braun Support Kirsch for Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) announced their support for the nomination of Thomas Kirsch to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Kirsch would fill the seat previously held by recently confirmed Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett.


President Trump announced his intent to nominate Kirsch, who currently serves as the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, last week.


“Thomas Kirsch has devoted his life to the pursuit of justice. As U.S. Attorney, he fearlessly took on public corruption, gang violence, and terrorist activity, and he served honorably in the U.S. Department of Justice for more than a decade. We fully support Mr. Kirsch’s nomination to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and look forward to a swift confirmation process,” Senators Young and Braun said in a joint statement.
