Chief Hoskin Issues Statement After U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Approves Sara Hill’s Federal Judgeship Nomination

Dec 7, 2023

“I am pleased, but not surprised, that former Cherokee Nation Attorney General Sara Hill was approved today by the United States Senate Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan basis. Sara Hill was approved over the fierce opposition of Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, the cockfighting lobby and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. On the other side was overwhelming support by people who understand that Sara Hill’s allegiance as a federal district judge will be the United States Constitution and the rule of law. She has been an outstanding attorney, public servant and will be an outstanding federal judge. I look forward to Sara Hill’s prompt confirmation by the full Senate.”
