Congratulations to Judge Bernice Bouie Donald, who formally joined the Sixth Circuit today.  She was sworn in by Judge Daughtrey at a ceremony in downtown Memphis.  Judge Donald's brief remarks at her investiture can be found here.  With Judge Donald on the bench, all sixteen seats are filled and the circuit is now at full strength.  Our prior coverage of her background and path through confirmation (on a 96-2 vote) is chronicled here, here, and here.
