WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has nominated Frank W. Volk as a U.S. District Court judge in West Virginia’s southern district.

U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito says in a news release she recommended Volk and he “has demonstrated his commitment to treating litigants fairly and upholding the rule of law through his years of service to our federal courts.”

Volk is a Morgantown native and currently is chief judge for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the southern district. He earned a degree from the West Virginia University College of Law.

The nomination must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
