BROOKLYN, NY -- Sanket Bulsara was officially sworn in November 2 as the Second Circuit judge during an investiture ceremony at the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York in downtown Brooklyn.

Bulsara, who became the first Indian American judge for the Second Circuit, has been serving in the position since August. He was sworn in as a magistrate judge by the court’s Chief Judge Dora Irizarry.

“Judge Bulsara is a living example of the American dream,” Irizarry said, adding that he is the son of immigrants from India who instilled in him the love of learning, the value of hard work, respect for others, humility and the importance of public service.”

In citing Bulsara’s heritage, Irizarry said, “It signals that there is fairness in the American system of justice and that the American dream is alive and well. It promotes respect for and confidence in our judiciary.”

Bulsara has previously served as the acting general counsel of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and deputy general counsel for Appellate Litigation, Adjudication and Enforcement within the SEC.

Bulsara, a native of the Bronx, was raised in Queens, NY by his parents who immigrated to the US from India.
