The US Senate will nominate Gray to the federal court in Detroit

Washington ― The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-8 Thursday morning to nominate Michigan U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan J.C. Gray to the Eastern District Court of Michigan.

Gray received bipartisan support, including Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, among other Democrats on the panel. No senator spoke against his nomination at Thursday’s hearing.

Gray, 40, of Detroit, had a hearing before the panel last year, but the Senate ran out of time to review his nomination before the end of the year, forcing President Joe Biden to renominate him last month.

Gray was sworn in on August 24, 2021 and has served as a magistrate judge for about 17 months.
