Senator worked with the White House on Hinderaker’s nomination
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today applauded the nomination of John Hinderaker by the President to serve as U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Arizona.
“John Hinderaker brings a wealth of experience to the U.S. District Court as one of the most well-respected professionals in the Arizona legal community. He has served Arizona with distinction. I am confident he will continue that legacy on the District Court and I am pleased the White House worked with me to find a highly qualified nominee for this important position,” said Sinema.
John Hinderaker was appointed by Governor Doug Ducey to serve as a Judge on the Arizona Superior Court in Pima County in February 2018, and he currently presides over family court and criminal dockets.
Before Judge Hinderaker was appointed to the bench, he worked as a partner in the Tucson office of Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP. Judge Hinderaker worked there for twenty years and his practice focused on commercial, real estate and land use litigation. Judge Hinderaker clerked for the late U.S. District Court Judge John M. Roll and the late U.S. Judge Magistrate Raymond T. Terlizzi. He earned his B.A., with honors, from the University of California Santa Barbara in 1991 and his J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Arizona College of Law in 1996.
