WASHINGTON, DC -- Representatives Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree are praising the successful confirmation of Jon Levy of Maine to serve as District Court Judge in the District of Maine. Levy, who was confirmed by a Senate vote, replaces the Honorable George Z. Singal, who has taken senior status.

"Jon Levy has served with distinction on the Maine Supreme Judicial Court for more than a decade, and possesses an extensive legal background that perfectly suits him for this appointment. We have no doubt that he will continue that honorable track record through his service on the District Court, and congratulate him on this deserved achievement," said Reps. Michaud and Pingree in a joint statement.

Reps. Michaud and Pingree, along with Senator Angus King, forwarded Levy's name to the White House for consideration last year following a screening process to fill the judicial vacancy. A bio of Levy, provided by the White House:
