Lee Applauds Confirmation of Justice Jill Parrish to Federal Bench
WASHINGTON—Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement regarding the confirmation of Utah Supreme Court Justice Jill Parrish as a federal judge for the district of Utah.
“I am thrilled that the Senate voted overwhelmingly to confirm Justice Jill Parrish today. She has distinguished herself though her time as an extraordinary prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s office, through her work as a litigator in private practice, and her service as a justice on Utah’s Supreme Court. Justice Parrish is a friend to all who know her, and a credit to the legal profession and to jurists everywhere. I can’t think of anyone better suited to fill the very large shoes of Judge Dee Benson than Justice Parrish, and thank her for her willingness to serve in this capacity. Today is a good day for Utah, and a good day for the Federal Judiciary.”
