Early life and education
On March 24, 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Demeo to be an associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Demeo's nomination drew opposition from Republican senators due to her opposition of Miguel Estrada's nomination to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, her work for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and her support of same-sex marriage. On April 20, 2010, Demeo was confirmed by the United States Senate by a vote of 66-32.
