On Monday, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Jimmie V. Reyna to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Reyna's expertise in international trade will serve the Federal Circuit well, as the court's jurisdiction includes appeals from the Court of International Trade (CIT) and International Trade Commission (ITC). In addition to heading the international trade practice area at the Williams Mullen firm, Reyna has also published a slew of articles and two books on the subject. Reyna is an active member of the Hispanic legal community and will be the first Hispanic judge on the Federal Circuit.
