Kara Stoll Confirmed to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Federal Circuit

Kara Farnandez Stoll, an adjunct professor at George Mason University School of Law, has been confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. President Barack Obama nominated Stoll to the Federal Circuit last November, and she was unanimously approved by the Senate on July 7, 2015.

“I am pleased to learn of the appointment of Kara Farnandez Stoll to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit,” School of Law Dean Henry N. Butler said. “Kara, who has served as an adjunct professor at George Mason Law since 2008, has considerable experience with patent litigation and earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost experts in the field. I am confident that Judge Stoll will serve the bench honorably and with the utmost proficiency.”

Since 2008, Stoll has served as an adjunct professor of a Federal Circuit Practice seminar. As a partner at Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner LLP, she has focused on patent litigation.
