Ind. Courts - "7th Circuit Nominee's Net Worth: Nearly $20M"

From an entry newly posted by David Ingram on The Blog of Legal Times - some quotes:

Victoria Nourse, a nominee for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, would likely leap into the ranks of the wealthiest federal judges if she is confirmed.

Nourse reported a household net worth of $19.8 million in a financial disclosure required as part of the Senate confirmation process. * * *

The disclosure report doesn’t ask nominees where their wealth comes from, but Nourse’s husband, Richard Cudahy Jr., is descended from the founder of meat processor Patrick Cudahy Inc. He works at the investment firm Robert W. Baird & Co.

(Nourse’s father-in-law, Richard Cudahy Sr., is a senior judge on the 7th Circuit. He is expected to retire if Nourse is confirmed, according to her answers to a separate Senate questionnaire.
