On Saturday, March 23, 2013, the U.S. Senate confirmed Raymond P. Moore as the new district court judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. Judge Moore will fill a vacancy created when Chief Judge Wiley Daniel became a Senior Judge on January 1, 2013.
Judge Moore graduated from Yale College in 1975, and from Yale Law School in 1978. He first practiced law with Davis, Graham, & Stubbs, then served as an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado for four years, returning to Davis, Graham, and Stubbs in 1986. He again left DGS in 1992 to work at the Office of the Federal Public Defender, and became a Federal Public Defender for the Districts of Colorado and Wyoming in 2004.
Judge Moore’s appointment was celebrated by Colorado Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, who praised his initial nomination and urged the Senate to confirm him quickly.
