9th Cir. Soccer Mom & Diva

Bloomberg/BNA US Law Week ran a profile of Judge Wardlaw last week at 83 U.S.L.W. 952 titled 9th Cir.'s Wardlaw: 'Soccer Mom,' 'Diva' and Champion of Judicial Empathy. The article references a Notre Dame Law Review essay she wrote, available here, and characterizes her as "left" but "pretty moderate."

“[P]ays attention to precedent,” but “feels sympathy for the underdog.”

Today's appellate tidbits from the DJ:

  • Brady v. Pitchess: Real Conflict or Fairy Tale, by Justice Hoffstadt.
  • Misguided Discounting of High Court Nominee, by Lorena Gonzalez.
