Holly Teeter confirmed as federal judge in Kansas

Judge Vratil's Replacement Confirmed

August 04, 2018 - 8:27 pm

The U.S. Senate has confirmed the newest federal district court judge in Kansas.

Thirty-eight-year-old Holly Teeter's nomination was confirmed on Wednesday. Her nomination was delayed last year when a majority of the American Bar Association's ratings committee rated her as unqualified because she had been practicing law for only 11.5 years, shy of the ABA's minimum 12 years of experience to be considered qualified.

President Donald Trump resubmitted her nomination in January.

Teeter will replace Judge Kathryn Vratil who retired from the district court bench in Topeka in 2014.
