President Obama has renominated a federal judge from New Jersey to serve on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes Western Pennsylvania, the White House announced Thursday.

Judge Patty Shwartz, 51, has served as a U.S. magistrate judge for the United District Court in Newark since 2003. She was a federal prosecutor in New Jersey between 1989 and 2002.

“Today, I am renominating 33 highly qualified candidates for the federal bench, including many who could have and should have been confirmed before the Senate adjourned,” Obama said in a news release.
