Historic Judicial Appointment and Confirmation

February 2, 2011

A report from your liaison to the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession:

I am thrilled to report that one of the 12 members of the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, Fernande “Nan” Duffly, has been confirmed as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts. Born in Indonesia to a Chinese mother and Dutch father, she is the first Asian-American to serve on the Supreme Judicial Court in Massachusetts. This historic appointment and confirmation is truly something for WIP to celebrate!
