New York: The Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) March 22 applauded the historic confirmation of Arun Subramanian to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
On March 7, the United States Senate voted to confirm Arun Subramanian to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Arun Subramanian will become the first South Asian American judge to serve on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
“AABANY is proud to celebrate Mr. Subramanian for his trailblazing achievements. Subramanian’s story is that of many in the New York Asian community. He is a child of immigrants and the first lawyer in his family. His career has been defined by repeatedly breaking through barriers facing those from minority backgrounds,” stated AABANY President, William Ng.
In his new role, incoming Judge Subramanian will serve on one of the nation’s most prestigious courts known for setting cutting-edge precedent on fast-developing areas of the law.
“It is vitally important for the AAPI community—and all minorities—to see judges like Mr. Subramanian appointed to the Federal court in New York. We expect him to continue his legacy of excellence on the bench,” Ng said.
