WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) today introduced David B. Barlow of South Jordan, who is nominated to be United States District Judge for the District of Utah, at his nomination hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Key excerpts of remarks are below.
“I have full confidence that David will faithfully apply the law and our Constitution to all matters and parties that come before him.
“David graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University. He earned his law degree from Yale Law School.
