Rosenbaum Nomination May 12, 2014
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"The two Senators from Florida, Senator Rubio and I, have a proud tradition in Florida of bipartisan support for our judicial nominees, and Judge Rosenbaum’s selection is just another example in that 20-some-year experience in Florida of selecting our judges through a judicial nominating commission. In fact, this is the second time Florida’s two Senators come together to support Robin Rosenbaum’s nomination—this time for the circuit court—since we, a couple years ago, had recommended her to the President, the President chose her, and she has been a Federal district judge in the Southern District of Florida for the last couple of years. The vacancy was created by Judge Rosemary Barkett, who recently retired from the Eleventh Circuit. Judge Barkett was also a very distinguished judge from the State of Florida."
Executive Session May 8, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Mr. President, today, we are again voting to overcome Republican filibusters of four highly qualified judicial nominees. The nominees are Judge Robin Rosenbaum to fill an emergency vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit; Indira Talwani to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts; James Peterson to fill an emergency vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin; and Nancy Rosenstengel to fill an emergency vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois."

Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I am privileged to recognize the dedicated service and contributions of Patrick G. Emmanuel on the occasion of his retirement from Emmanuel Sheppard and Condon, one of the oldest law firms in Pensacola, Florida. For 67 years, Mr. Emmanuel proudly served the law profession and Northwest Florida with passion and integrity. Prior to his career in law, Mr. Emmanuel served our Nation with honor and distinction as an officer in the United States Armed Forces. As a U.S. Army major, he earned the Bronze Star for his service as part of a tank battalion unit during World War II. Upon graduating from the University of Florida College of Law in 1946, Mr. Emmanuel began his long and decorated legal career. His countless accolades attest to his expertise as an attorney. Mr. Emmanuel has been listed in each prestigious volume of The Best Lawyers in America from 1983 until present, was rated by Martindale Hubbell as an A-V attorney, and was the recipient of the Florida Bar Foundation’s “2001 Medal of Honor Award.” He also served as a Fellow in the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, the American College of Trial Lawyers, and the American Bar Association. His vast list of memberships include: The Florida Bar, President, 1985-1986; Florida Bar Foundation, President, 1971-1973; Federal Judicial Nominating Commission of Florida, member and Chairman, 1974-1981; American Bar Association, Delegate, 1986-1989; Society of the Bar of the First Judicial Circuit, President, 1967; and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, Delegate, 1986-1990. In addition to serving his profession, Mr. Emmanuel also maintained an honorable level of commitment to the Northwest Florida community. For 20 years, he was a pro bono attorney for the Northwest Florida Crippled Children’s Home, as well as served on their Board of Directors. Mr. Emmanuel was Chairman of the Advisory Board of Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola for a decade, was appointed by the Governor to the Florida Children’s Commission, chaired the Legal Division of the March of Dimes, and was a member of the James Baroco Foundation, Inc. His extensive pro bono work earned him the recognition of the Florida Bar and their President’s Pro Bono Service Award. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the entire United States Congress, it is an honor to recognize the impressive career and achievements of one of Northwest Florida’s most accomplished attorneys, Patrick G. Emmanuel. My wife Vicki and I congratulate Mr. Emmanuel, and we wish him and his family all the best for continued success."
