Immergut nominated to federal bench
Multnomah County Circuit Judge Karin J. Immergut has been nominated to a seat on Oregon's federal bench.
President Trump nominated Immergut Wednesday, Jan. 23, to be a judge on Oregon's U.S. District Court. She replaces Senior Judge Anna J. Brown, who is retiring. Her nomination must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Immergut, 58, was appointed to the Multnomah County bench in 2009 by then-Gov. Ted Kulongoski. She was U.S. attorney for Oregon from 2003 to 2009, and a former deputy district attorney in Multnomah County.
Brown, 66, became the senior U.S. District judge in 2017. She has been a federal judge since October 1999. Brown also served as a district and circuit judge in Multnomah County from 1992 until April 1999, when she was nominated to the federal bench by President Bill Clinton.
