W.Va. lawyer nominated to federal appeals court

Law Center Posted on

President Barack Obama has nominated Hamlin native Stephanie Dawn Thacker as a judge on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Thacker has been a partner in the Charleston law firm of Guthrie & Thomas since 2006.

Before that she spent seven years with the U.S. Department of Justice. Her work as a trial attorney there focused on prosecution and training in connection with child pornography and sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, obscenity and other offenses.

She also served as an assistant federal prosecutor and worked for the state attorney general's office.

The U.S. Senate must now consider Thacker's nomination to the Richmond, Va.-based court. The seat became vacant after the March death of Judge Blane Michael.

The 15-member court covers North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
