Justice Gabriel P. Sanchez

President Biden nominated Gabriel P. Sanchez to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on September 20, 2021 for the seat being vacated by Judge Marsha Berzon, who is retiring. Justice Sanchez was the first male Latino justice ever appointed to the California Court of Appeal, First Appellate District. If confirmed to the Ninth Circuit, he would bring varied legal experience, a demonstrated commitment to equal justice, and important demographic diversity to the federal bench.
