THE HONORABLE ALEX KOZINSKI
UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT

Judge Alex Kozinski serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth
Circuit. Appointed by former President Ronald Reagan on November 7, 1985,
Judge Kozinski has won support from various political groups with his common-
sense decisions, libertarian instinct and humorous writing style.

Born in Romania, Judge Kozinski emigrated to California with his parents when
he was twelve years old. He received his undergraduate degree from UCLA.
After graduating from the UCLA School of Law, he clerked for Judge Anthony
Kennedy on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and then
for Chief Justice Warren Berger of the United States Supreme Court. He spent a
few years in private practice before joining the White House Counsel’s Office
during former President Ronald Reagan’s term.

Judge Kozinski began his judicial career as the Chief Judge of the then newly-
formed Court of Federal Claims. At age 35, he was appointed to the Ninth
Circuit by former President Ronald Reagan, making Judge Kozinski the
youngest U.S. Appeals Court judge in the country. One of Judge Kozinski’s
highest profile cases has been Mattel, Inc. v. MCA Records, Inc., in which the
Ninth Circuit dismissed a lawsuit by Mattel against Danish pop group Aqua for
dilution of the Barbie trademark in a song that lampooned Barbie. In that case,
Judge Kozinski concluded his opinion with the words “[t]he parties are advised
to chill”.

Judge Kozinski is a renown essayist, and has won admirers across the political
spectrum with his clear and witty writing. His writings have been featured in
such mainstream publications as Slate, The New Yorker, The New Republic and
The National Review.
