    The three Judges have been appointed for the Perry Appeal:

    Judge Janice Rogers Brown
    Born May 11, 1949. she is a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She previously was an Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court, holding that post from May 2, 1996, until her appointment to the D.C. Circuit.

    President George W. Bush nominated her to her current position in 2003. However, her nomination was stalled in the U.S. Senate for almost two years because of Democratic opposition. She began serving as a Federal Appellate Court Judge on June 8, 2005.


    Judge Douglas Howard Ginsburg
    Born May 25, 1946 he is a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He was appointed to this court at age forty in October 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, and served as its chief judge from July 2001 until February 2008. Ginsburg was nominated by Reagan to fill a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy in October 1987, but soon withdrew from consideration after his earlier marijuana use created a controversy.

    Ginsburg took senior status at age 65 in October 2011, and joined the faculty of New York University School of Law in January 2012. He is the author of numerous scholarly works on antitrust and constitutional law.[7] He is not related to Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg.


    Judge Patricia Ann Millett
    Born September 1963, she is a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She formerly headed the Supreme Court practice at the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. Millett also was a longtime former assistant to the United States Solicitor General and served as an occasional blogger for SCOTUSblog. At the time of her confirmation to the D.C. Circuit, she had argued 32 cases before the United States Supreme Court. In February 2016 The New York Times identified her as a potential nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Millett’s 2013 nomination to the D.C. Circuit, along with the nominations of Robert L. Wilkins and Nina Pillard, ultimately became central to the debate over the use of the filibuster in the United States Senate, leading to the use of the nuclear option to bring it to the floor for a vote.
