M.C. Sungaila in Daily Journal: Recently Appointed Magistrate Armed with Decades of Trial Experience


Recently appointed U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen E. Scott credits her experience as a litigator handling both complex business and public law cases for paving the way to a role on the bench...

Appellate lawyer M. C. Sungaila, a partner at Haynes and Boone LLP who first worked with Scott about two years ago on a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals case Scott was preparing to argue, described Scott as "extremely incisive, well versed in both the record and the law, and open minded about different approaches to the case."

"She was smart as a whip, but also very practical, and humble and understated about her abilities," Sungaila said.
