To complicate matters further, Judge Jury now serves in an appellate capacity: I just received news that last week the U.S. Bankruptcy Appellate Panel of the Ninth Circuit issued a decision agreeing with the outcome that my friend and colleague Peter Goldberger and I argued in favor of in an amicus brief that we filed in May of 2011 on behalf of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.

Among the more interesting things one might learn upon receiving a ruling of the 9th Circuit's BAP is that one of the judges on that court is Meredith A. Jury (additional details available here). I have noticed various judges over the years with the last name Judge or Justice, but this is the first Judge Jury whom I have noticed. Appropriately, she now serves on an appellate court.
