LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Walmart official and former top attorney for the state of Arkansas has been nominated for a federal judgeship.
President Donald Trump on Monday announced his intention to nominate Lee Rudofsky to serve as a U.S. district court judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas. Rudofsky is senior director for global anti-corruption compliance at Bentonville-based Walmart Inc.
Rudofsky resigned as state solicitor general last year to take the job with Walmart. He had previously served since 2015 as state solicitor general, a position Attorney General Leslie Rutledge created to assist with multi-state consumer protection cases and appeals at the state and federal level.
