Sutton named to House Committee on the Judiciary

Washington , D.C. – Last week, Congresswoman Betty Sutton was appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the House Committee on the Judiciary.  In selecting Sutton for this appointment, Speaker Pelosi cited her legal credentials and expertise. 

“I am honored and excited to have been chosen to serve as a member of the Committee on the Judiciary by Speaker Pelosi.  My membership on this Committee will provide me the opportunity to impact a wide variety of policies on behalf of my constituents,” Sutton said.  “I look forward to working on the Committee to accomplish the goals important to the American people.” 

“I am pleased to have Congresswoman Sutton join the House Judiciary Committee, where I know she will be a valuable Member,” Pelosi said.  “I am confident that her legal background as a respected attorney and her knowledge of the key issues before this committee will serve the panel and the country well.  The Committee on the Judiciary will be handling some of the most important issues of this Congress, and her presence on the Committee will give the people of Ohio’s Thirteenth District a powerful voice.”

Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) welcomed Sutton. 

“I am pleased that Ms. Sutton will be serving as a member of the Committee.  Her background, experience and intelligence will be a clear asset to the Judiciary Committee and the Congress,” Conyers said. 

Prior to being elected to Congress in 2006, Sutton served as an attorney representing workers in Northeast Ohio.  She served four terms in the Ohio House of Representatives, where she was vice-chair of the Judiciary Committee.  She holds a juris doctor degree from the University of  Akron School of Law. 

The Committee on the Judiciary has broad jurisdiction over issues, including federal anti-trust laws, courts and judges, constitutional issues and amendments, civil rights and liberties, patents, trademarks and copyrights, interstate compacts, and appointment of representatives. 

Sutton will fill the seat vacated by former Congress Marty Meehan (D-MA), who left Congress earlier this month.  She will vacate her seat on the House Committee on the Budget, but will continue to serve as a member of the House Committee on Rules.
