Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, an Alameda County judge since 2008, was confirmed by the Senate on Tuesday for the U.S. District Court in Oakland, where she will become the first Latina federal judge in the Bay Area.
The Senate voted 89-6 to approve President Obama's nomination of Gonzalez Rogers to fill the vacancy created by U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's retirement in February. There was no debate, and the opponents, all Republicans, did not say why they voted against the nominee, who had not drawn any opposition in her committee hearing.
Gonzalez Rogers, 46, a Texas native and Princeton honors graduate, spent 12 years as a real estate and business lawyer in San Francisco before Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed her to the Superior Court in Oakland in 2008. She hears civil cases and has been presiding over a family law calendar.
She has been active in La Raza Lawyers Association and other Latino groups.

Texas bred, no less. Si se Puede!
It would benefit Princeton to pay her to not advertise she is an alumna. Kinda like when Abercrombie and Fitch paid the morons on Jersey Shore to not wear their clothing. lol!
Prescient stuff. Unless something dramatic happens to reverse the tide, it’s all downhill from here.
If demography is destiny, then we’ve already lost the SW. We won’t have 50 states in 25 years.
