by Nick Delgado

Guam - President Barack Obama nominated six individuals to serve as a District court judge including Judge Ramona Villagomez Manglona for the Northern Mariana Islands. A White House news release states that Manglona has been an associate judge with the CNMI superior court since 2003. She also served as a judge and justice pro tempore with the Guam Superior and Supreme Courts from 2004-2008.

President Obama states, "Throughout their careers these distinguished men and women have demonstrated a steadfast commitment to public service." He adds, "I am confident they will serve the American people with distinction from the District court bench." Manglona was also the CNMI deputy attorney general in 2002 and was later promoted to attorney general.

She is a 1996 graduate from the New Mexico School of Law and also got her masters at the University of California, Berkeley in 1990.
