Allison Eid '91 Nominated to 10th Circuit Court of Appeals

President Donald Trump on Wednesday will nominate Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid to take the place of Neil Gorsuch on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Denver, said two congressional aides in Colorado’s delegation.

The news first was reported by The Washington Times, and Eid was among several new judicial nominations Trump is putting forward.

Like Gorsuch, Eid was on Trump’s short list of potential Supreme Court nominees and when Gorsuch got the nod for the high court, Colorado’s legal community predicted Eid would get a chance to fill his seat.
