Breaking -- Alicia Valle is your new Magistrate

Congrats to all around nice person and long time spokeswoman at the U.S. Attorney's Office Alicia Valle, who will be a great judge. 

I found this bio of her online

Alicia Olivera Valle has been the Special Counsel to the United States Attorney, Southern District of Florida, since May 2005.  In this capacity, Ms. Valle handles special case-related and other projects and all media for the U.S. Attorney.  Since joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1987, she has successfully prosecuted various high-profile public corruption and white-collar criminal cases in New Jersey and Florida, including cases against the Mayor of Parsippany, the former Manager and Chief of Police for the City of Miami, and the President of the Miami-Dade teacher’s union, all on corruption charges.  During her tenure at the Miami U.S. Attorney’s Office, Ms. Valle has served as Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney, twice Chief of the Economic Crimes Section, and until her promotion to Special Counsel in 2005, as Chief of the Public Corruption Section.  Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Ms. Valle clerked for the Honorable Stewart G. Pollock of the Supreme Court of New Jersey.  She was also an associate with the law firm of Clapp & Eisenberg in Newark, New Jersey.  Ms. Valle received her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and law degree from Harvard Law School.

Congrats again!
