Her experience includes defending class actions, prosecuting and defending unfair competition claims, professional malpractice and general business litigation at both the state and federal levels.

Jennings began her legal career as a law clerk to Judge William J. Haynes, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. She earned her B.A. from Emory University and J.D. from the Washington College of Law at American University, where she served as a senior associate on the American University International Law Review.

“Rebecca is an award-winning litigator with a deep knowledge of the law and her community. She will use her skills to serve the people of Kentucky well on the federal bench, and I look forward to the Senate confirming her nomination.”

No timetable has been announced for Senate action.
