Marisa J. Demeo is a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

Early life and education[edit]

Demeo was born in Washington, D.C.[1] She attended the New York University School of Law and earned her J.D. in 1993.[2]

Judicial service[edit]

In 2007, Demeo was appointed to be a magistrate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.[2]

On March 24, 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Demeo to be an associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.[1] 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.[3] On April 20, 2010, Demeo was confirmed by the United States Senate by a vote of 66-32.[3][4]
