Honorable T. Kent Wetherell II Confirmed to Federal Bench

Today, the Senate confirmed President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge T. Kent Wetherell II to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida.

Judge Wetherell has served the people of Florida for the past 20 years—first as a deputy solicitor general, then as an administrative law judge, and finally as an appellate judge on the First District Court of Appeal, where he has served with distinction since 2009.

The First District Court of Appeal congratulates Judge Wetherell on this honor and wishes him the best as he continues his public service as a federal judge.
