Liu, (pictured right) is a ConLawProf at UC-Berkeley (Boalt Hall) who has been nominated for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  The LATimes reports that Liu is facing opposition from conservatives who believe Liu is too liberal.

Liu clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and for Judge David Tatel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.   He has a B.S., from Stanford University (1991); a M.A. from Oxford University (1993), and his J.D. from Yale Law School (1998).   A list of his publications is here.
