On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced his intention to appoint two experienced attorneys from Washington, D.C., to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

Joseph Palmore, a partner at Morrison, and Carmen Iguina González, a civil rights attorney with Kaplan Hecker & Fink, are set to be submitted for Senate approval to join the highest court of D.C. The District of Columbia Court of Appeals handles appeals from the city’s trial courts, encompassing both civil and criminal matters, as well as issues related to attorney discipline. Judges appointed to this court serve for 15-year terms, which are renewable.

At this time, neither Palmore nor Iguina González have made any comments in response to their nominations.

Iguina González joined Kaplan Hecker in 2022 and currently leads the Civil Rights Clinic at Howard University School of Law. Her prior roles include serving as a senior staff attorney at the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project and an associate at Jones Day between 2018 and 2020. She also clerked for Justice Sonia Sotomayor in 2017.

Palmore, who has been with Morrison since 2014, previously worked as an appellate lawyer at the Justice Department. His resume includes arguing cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, where he once clerked for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2001. Palmore’s notable clients include Apple and Chobani.

Another of Biden’s appointees, Loren AliKhan, was previously nominated to the D.C. appeals court before being assigned to the D.C. federal bench last year, where she made history as the first South Asian American woman to serve on that court.
