Two Sooners Nominated to Federal Court Seats


President Clinton has nominated two Oklahomans to seats on federal courts, including one whose confirmation would make state history.

Vicki Miles-LaGrange presently serves as U.S. attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma. Miles-LaGrange was nominated for a seat on the U.S. District Court in that same district.

She served in the Oklahoma State Senate from 1987 to 1993 and was an assistant district attorney in Oklahoma County for three years prior to her legislative service.

If confirmed, Miles-LaGrange would be the first black person ever to be named to the a U.S. District judgeship in Oklahoma, Sen. David Boren, D-Okla., said in a news release from Washington.
