Washington (PTI): Described by President Barack Obama as a 'trailblazer', Sri Srinivasan has bright chances to become the first ever Indian-American to serve as a US federal judge as he faced no outright opposition from Republican senators during a confirmation hearing. During his confirmation hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee, an impressive Srinivisan appeared to have won the heart of the opposing Republican Senators. Republican Senator Orrin Hatch openly supported him while another Republican Senator Ted Cruz asked soft questions and then narrated stories of their friendship. If confirmed by the Senate, he would be the first South Asian judge on District of Columbia Circuit, which is described as the second top court in the country after the US Supreme Court.
