Local lawyer gets federal nomination

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — President Obama nominated Wednesday a western New York attorney to serve as a judge on the U.S. District Court.

He’s picked Lawrence Vilardo, a lawyer who is currently a partner in a law firm in Buffalo, to do the job.

Vilardo is 30-year law veteran, and a graduate of Canisius College and Harvard Law.

Senator Chuck Schumer made the recommendation last fall, calling Vilardo patient, even handed and analytically.
