Biden Nominates Saporito For U.S. District Court in Middle District of PA

Joseph Saparito

President Joe Biden made his 49th round of nominees for federal judicial positions on Wednesday and tabbed Joseph Saparito Jr. as his selection to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

According to a White House press release, “These choices also continue to fulfill the President’s promise to ensure that the nation’s courts reflect the diversity that is one of our greatest assets as a country — both in terms of personal and professional backgrounds.”

Saparito has served as a United States Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania since 2015 and has been the Court’s Chief United States Magistrate Judge since February 2024.

Prior to his appointment to the bench, Judge Saporito served as a part-time Assistant Public Defender in the Office of the Public Defender for Luzerne County from 1985 to 2015, while concurrently maintaining a private legal practice at Saporito & Saporito and then Saporito, Saporito & Falcone.

He received his J.D. from the Dickinson School of Law in 1985, and his B.A. from Villanova University in 1982.

Biden has now announced 240 nominees for the federal bench. Former President Donald Trump got 234 judges confirmed during his tenure, including three to the Supreme Court.
