Judge Patty Shwartz Magistrate Judge, United States District Court for the District of New Jersey
Nominee for the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
50 Years old (age not confirmed)

President Obama nominated Paterson-born federal magistrate Judge Patty Shwartz to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on Wednesday.

"Judge Shwartz has a long and impressive record of service and a history of handing down fair and judicious decisions," Obama said in a news release. "She will be a thoughtful and distinguished addition to the Third Circuit."

Shwartz is a 1983 graduate from Rutgers University who got her law degree in 1986 from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. She worked in the U.S. Attorney's Office from 1989 through 2003, a term that included two stints as chief of the criminal division interrupted by service as executive assistant to the U.S. Attorney.
