Senators applaud nomination of Judge Frances Kay Behm to federal bench in Michigan's Eastern District

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters on Wednesday applauded President Biden’s nomination of Judge F. Kay Behm as the U.S. District Court Judge to the Eastern District of Michigan.

“The White House made the right decision with their nomination of Judge Frances Kay Behm. Judge Behm has been a thoughtful public servant throughout Genesee County at the 7th Circuit Court. She is an outstanding choice and I look forward to moving her nomination through the Senate confirmation process,” said Stabenow.

“Judge Behm is a highly-qualified jurist whose extensive legal experience and dedication to public service will serve our state and nation well,” said Peters. “I applaud her nomination to serve as the next federal judge in the Eastern District of Michigan,
and I look forward to supporting Judge Behm through the Senate confirmation process.”

Behm has served as a judge for the Genesee County Circuit and Probate Courts since 2009. She was previously a solo practitioner from 2008 to 2009. From 1997 to 2008, Behm was an associate at Winegarden, Haley, Lindholm, & Robertson in Flint and an associate at Braun, Kendrick, Finbeiner in Saginaw from 1994 to 1997. Behm received her law degree from the University of Michigan Law School in 1994 and her B.A. from Albion College in 1991.
