Eight months after being nominated, Terrence Berg, the former interim U.S. Attorney in Detroit, was confirmed Thursday by the U.S. Senate for a U.S. District Court judgeship in Detroit,  the Detroit Free Press reports.

Berg had been waiting for Senate approval since President Obama nominated him to the seat in April.

Berg is well-respected, Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law, told the Free Press.

“It’s not like he’s going to be unfamiliar with the federal bench,” he said. “He’s an experienced, well-qualified choice.”
