“The Capital Region’s own, Anne Nardacci, will now officially be bringing her tremendous expertise, integrity, and intelligence to the bench as a district court judge for the Northern District of New York. Judge Nardacci has spent nearly twenty years fighting for transparency and the rights of consumers, and holding wrongdoers accountable -- all invaluable experience that demonstrates her ability to apply equal justice under the law to the Capital Region. With her confirmation, the Northern District bench has now transformed to a historic majority of women serving as active judges, and I am proud to have recommended three highly qualified legal professionals to make it happen,” said Senator Schumer. “The legal field is better because of highly-qualified professionals like the Capital Region’s own Anne Nardacci. She will bring dignity, excellence and honor to her post as a judge on the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York.”
