Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals now at full strength

by Rox Laird | February 1, 2018

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit is up to full strength with the Senate confirmation on Jan. 30 of David Stras of Minnesota.

Stras was a justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court prior to his appointment by President Donald Trump in May. He joins two other Trump nominees – Ralph Erickson of North Dakota and Steven Grasz of Nebraska – who were confirmed last year.

The Eighth Circuit has jurisdiction for federal court appeals in Iowa and six other Midwest states.

Two of 11 active judges on the Court are Iowans: Jane Kelly of Cedar Rapids and Steven Colloton of Des Moines.

See our Oct. 5 post for more background on the Eighth Circuit nominations.
