Judge Evan Jonathan Wallach of the International Trade Court has been nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit by President Barack Obama.
Judge Wallach has served on the U.S. Court of International Trade since 1995. He was nominated to the position when Judge Arthur Gajarsa retired.
“Judge Wallach has distinguished himself throughout his legal career in both the public and private sectors,” said Obama in a statement. “He possesses a keen intellect and a commitment to fairness and integrity that will serve him well as a judge on the Federal Circuit.”
Born in Superior, Arizona, Judge Wallach served in the Vietnam War after enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1969. He has a bachelor of arts from the University of Arizona, a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law and a LL.B. in public international law from the University of Cambridge Law School.
More than 230 cases have been presided over by Judge Wallach to verdict or judgement and he has also sat by designation on federal appellate and trial courts.
