  • The media are reporting that Judge Hull has informed President Trump that she intends to take senior status. She has been on the Eleventh Circuit for almost twenty years, after being elevated from the Northern District of Georgia by President Bill Clinton in 1997. This vacancy will give President Trump his second opportunity to appoint a member of the Eleventh Circuit, after Kevin Newsom was confirmed as the court’s newest judge earlier this August.

    Judge Hull started her legal career as a law clerk to Eversheds Sutherland founding partner Judge Elbert P. Tuttle.
