Illinois: For the first time in years, the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois is compromised of a full bench of judges. Tuesday, the United States Senate confirmed Sara Lynn Darrow. Darrow was originally nominated on November 17, 2010 to succeed Joe McDade.[1]

Since 2003, Darrow served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the district. After her confirmation, she said, "I am incredibly grateful to the president, Sen. (Richard) Durbin and to the U.S. Senate. I am deeply honored and humbled by their support. I am eager to get to work and to continue to serve the people of the central district as a judge."[2]

As a federal judge, Darrow was confirmed to a lifetime appointment.
