Senate Comm. Approves Mastroianni’s Nomination to Federal Court
(WGGB) — Hampden County District Attorney Mark Mastroianni is one step closer to becoming a federal judge.
Thursday, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee approved Mastroianni’s nomination for a federal judgeship by a voice vote.
His nomination now goes to the full Senate for a confirmation vote.
President Obama nominated Mastroianni, who has been District Attorney since January 2011, to a seat at the U.S. District Court in Springfield in September 2013.
It’s not yet known when the U.S. Senate will take up that confirmation vote.
