Nov 01 2021
WASHINGTON – U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine (both D-VA) issued the following statement applauding the Senate confirmation of Toby J. Heytens to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit:
“We are glad to know that Toby J. Heytens will serve as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit following today’s successful confirmation in the Senate. Having recommended Mr. Heytens to the President for appointment, we trust that he will serve Virginia and the nation honorably.”
Sens. Warner and Kaine have been supporters of Heytens’ nomination. In May, the Senators sent a letter to the President, recommending Mr. Heytens for the vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, following Judge Barbara M. Keenan’s decision to take senior status in August 2021. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals is based in Richmond and hears federal appeals from Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
