A Maricopa County Superior Court Judge, and the wife of state Attorney General Mark Brnovich, was confirmed by the Senate to serve as a federal judge. 

Susan Brnovich, who was nominated by President Donald Trump in January 2018, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as a district judge of the U.S. District on October 11, 2018. Brnovich served as a Maricopa County Court commissioner from 2003 to 2009, and has been a judge at the court since 2009. 

She also worked as a deputy county attorney for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office from 1995 to 2003. 

Brnovich is replacing District Judge Neil V. Wake, who left the court in July 2016 to take senior status. 

Federal district court judges serve lifetime appointments dependent upon good behavior.
