Lynne Liberato on "If I Were Obama, My Supreme Court Pick Would Be..."


asked leaders of appellate groups at top firms who they would nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court if they were in President Barack Obama's shoes and Justice John Paul Stevens announced his retirement.

Lynne Liberato, Haynes and Boone, LLP partner and co-chair of the appellate practice stated that she would choose Judge Diane Pamela Wood, 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Liberato says, "Judge Wood is a thoughtful and careful judge with a national reputation. She demonstrates an understanding that the justices are not only the masters but the servants of the law and of the parties who appear before them."
