CHEYENNE, Wyoming: Wyoming first lady Nancy Freudenthal made history on Wednesday when she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the first female federal judge in Wyoming history. Freudenthal, wife of Gov. Dave Freudenthal, was confirmed by a vote of 96-1, with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) as the only voice of dissent.

Freudenthal succeeds Judge Clarence Brimmer on the U.S. District Court of Wyoming, which will now have two Democratic-appointed judges and one Republican-appointed judge. She is a partner at Davis & Cannon LLP in Cheyenne, and will not be sworn in until summer to allow her to wrap up her law practice.[1]
