A Darien woman has been named by President Donald Trump to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Jennifer H. Rearden, a partner in the litigation and crisis management practice groups at New York City-based firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, lives in Darien according to her Facebook page....
In 2008, she donated $2,000 to Barack Obamas campaign, and Rearden has contributed repeatedly to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as Gillibrands Off the Sidelines PAC which works to get more women elected to office.
Rearden has donated to several Democratic campaigns, according to Federal Elections Commission data.

Is she now a convert to Trump?
There must also be an Ivanka short list.
Not good for the president.
This does NOT sound like a good appointment at all. She must be a real white bread type, living in pricy Darien.
I would be more interested in how she rules from the bench. Personal politics, unless used to corrupt the judicial conduct, are a secondary concern.
She might be the best of a bunch of bad choices.
Trump has put 2 other judges on the Southern Dist or NY. With the influx of previous democrat voters into the Trump party.
Nice convenient location for the Derps to continue their /MAGA campaign.
I smell McConnell/Graham on this one. Democrat “Blue slip” obstruction is still in effect on district courts AFAIK.
District court nomination subject to the blue slip nonsense. Likely Graham throwing a bone to his “good friend” Democrats.
Who is there to pick from in NYC?
Litigation and crisis management?
Sounds like she should be on TV. ‘If you’ve been hurt in a car accident...’
After Flimsey Grahamnesty is re-elected he’ll be working to get his friends across the aisle that permanent majority with amnesty for illegal aliens, count on it.
Never trust a Democrat...never
District judges are still subject to the “blue slip” rule, which means that this vacancy had to be acceptable to the (Dem) senators from NY.
District court nomination subject to the blue slip nonsense. Likely Graham throwing a bone to his good friend Democrats.
EXACTLY RIGHT! Their are no District Court judges named to state such as California, New York and New Jersey without the approval of their RAT senators. THANKS A LOT GRAHAMNESTY!
Drop El Trumpo a brief note.
