The Senate Committee on the Judiciary scheduled a hearing on "Judicial Nominations" on Tuesday, with six Arizona nominees.

Six nominees to the federal bench in Arizona had their long-awaited confirmation hearings this week. Among the group of potential new federal judges is Diane Humetewa, who would be the first American Indian woman on the federal bench. Paul Bender is a law professor at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. He said the nominees overall represent a diverse group.
