Judicial Profile: Consuelo Callahan

For defendants, new Ninth Circuit judge not an easy sell

, The Recorder

A word of advice to those appearing before Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Consuelo Callahan: Watch out if she asks a lot of questions. It could mean you're going down. She believes in the power of oral argument. That means there's a chance you can persuade her, even if you are on the receiving end of questioning, which she likes to be more conversation than interrogation.
