Transcript:

“I’m proud to be here today to introduce an outstanding Georgian, Judge Stan Baker, who has been nominated by President Trump to fill a federal District Court vacancy in the Southern District of Georgia. Judge Baker has enjoyed a distinguished legal career and has served with distinction on the bench.

Judge Baker has served as a United States Magistrate Judge in the Southern District since 2015. He graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law with high honors and began his legal career by serving for two years as a law clerk to Judge William T. Moore, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia. He went on to spend a decade as a criminal and civil litigation attorney before being appointed to his current position. During that time, he litigated numerous criminal and civil matters in state and federal courts in Georgia and 13 other states.

I’m so proud and happy to be able to welcome Judge Baker to today’s hearing along with his wife, Crystal, his two daughters, Anna Beth and Belle Grace, and all of his other family members and friends who are here with him today. I’m extremely proud to support his nomination and applaud the President for his selection of such an impressive Georgian to fill this seat on the federal bench.”
