Judge Michelle Friedland of the CA9 panel on Trump immigration matter

Appointed by President Obama, Judge Friedland (now sitting on the appeal of Trump's immigration matter at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, has New Jersey and Stanford ties. From wikipedia:

She graduated from The Pingry School in Basking Ridge, NJ. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in ecology and population biology in 1995 from Stanford University (,,,) She received a Juris Doctor in 2000 from Stanford Law School

There is no mention of any judicial experience obtained prior to being nominated to CA9.

In oral argument on the Trump matter, Judge Friedland asked: “Are you arguing, then, that the president’s decision in that regard is unreviewable?”

As to Pingry, Wikipedia also notes: Pingry's motto is Maxima reverentia pueris debetur, a Latin phrase literally meaning "the greatest respect is owed to the boys."

Pingry grads include William ("Bull") Halsey Jr., who was a firm believer in the aircraft carrier as the primary naval offensive weapon system, and thus a major innovator in naval warfare.
