Watson wins Senate committee nod

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has approved the nomination of Derrick Kahala Watson as Hawai`i’s fourth full-time U.S. District Court judge. Watson, an assistant U.S. attorney in Hawai`i since 2007, was nominated by President Barack Obama to the
lifetime judge position last year and re-nominated by the president last month for the new Senate.
He is a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, Harvard College and Harvard Law School, who worked at various San Francisco law firms and the U.S. attorney’s office in the Northern District of California from 1991 until returning to the islands in 2007. His nomination now goes before the full Senate for final confirmation.
