Madeline Hughes Haikala was nominated last month by President Obama to fill a District Judge vacancy in Alabama. She has served as a United States Magistrate Judge in the Northern District of Alabama since 2012. Previously, Judge Haikala was a partner at the Birmingham law firm Lightfoot, Franklin & White. In private practice, the nominee handled a broad range of commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate levels, appearing in both federal and state courts. From 1998 to 2005, Judge Haikala taught Appellate Law at Cumberland School of Law as an adjunct professor. She received her J.D. magna cum laude in 1989 from Tulane University Law School and her B.A. in 1986 from Williams College. Hopefully, Judge Haikala will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. I believe she is an excellent nominee and will be an outstanding District Judge.
