The Senate confirmed former Eastern District of Missouri U.S. Attorney Audrey G. Fleissig for a seat on the U.S. District Court by a 90-0 vote. The Senate also confirmed former Central District of California Assistant U.S. Attorney Lucy Koh for a judgeship in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California also by a 90-0 vote.

Fleissig led the St. Louis-based U.S. Attorney’s office from 2000 to 2001. She also spent about 10 years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in St. Louis.

Koh was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Major Frauds Section at the Los Angeles-based U.S. Attorney’s office from 1997 to 2000. She also served as a special assistant to the Deputy Attorney General from 1996 to 1997, and as a special counsel at DOJ headquarters in D.C. from 1994 to 1996.
