Judge Jacqueline H. Nguyen: US District, Central District of California

She was nominated by Obama in July of 2009 and confirmed in December of that year. He is elevating her very quickly.

"The journey to the upper echelons of the nationís judicial system has been a long one for Nguyen. It started in 1975, when 10-year old Nguyen fled her native Vietnam with her family after the fall of Saigon. They boarded one of the last American military transports out of the city, and spent several weeks in a refugee camp in the Philippines before arriving at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base near San Diego."
