Two California Judges on Obama’s Short List for Supreme Court

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 10, 2016

Two California judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit are reportedly on the Obama administration’s short list to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Both Jacqueline H. Nguyen and Paul J. Watford are graduates of UCLA Law School, and if they were to be nominated and confirmed — decidedly uncertain on both counts — they would be the first from their law school to serve on the nation’s highest court. (Chief Justice Earl Warren attended UC Berkeley).

Nguyen and Watford were nominated to the 9th Circuit by President Obama and confirmed in 2012 after their nominations stalled amid partisan bickering over judges, which continues to this day.
