Nusrat Chaudhary, first Muslim woman in US Senate,

The US Senate has confirmed civil rights lawyer Nusrat Chaudhary as a judge of the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, making her the first Bangladeshi American and the first federal Muslim woman judge in the United States.

Nusrat Chowdhury previously spent most of his professional life with the National American Civil Liberties Union in Illinois, where he worked on issues of racial justice and national security. She was the deputy director of the institution’s racial justice program from 2018 to 2020. US President Joe Biden nominated him to the federal bench in January 2022.
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that Nusrat Chaudhary’s “experience as a talented and dedicated civil rights attorney has prepared her to serve with integrity and professionalism on the federal bench.” And they will follow the facts and they will deliver justice with impartiality and rule of law”.
Nusrat Chowdhury faced intense questioning from some Republican members of the Senate after he gave conflicting answers about whether he made the comments at a Princeton University event in 2015 in which he said that unarmed black men are killed by police “every day”.

In addition to clerking for a judge in the Near Southern District of New York, Nusrat Chaudhary also served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which hears cases from federal courts in New York, Connecticut, and Vermont. Reviews.
Nusrat Jahan Chaudhry is the second Muslim confirmed for the federal bench in 2021 after Pakistani-American Zahid Qureshi.
