Barry Bonds' felony obstruction of justice conviction is in the hands of three federal appeals court judges who were each appointed by a different Democratic president. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday unveiled its February schedule, which showed publicly for the first time the three judges assigned to Bonds' case. Senior judges Mary Schroeder and Michael Daly Hawkins along with Judge Mary Murguia will hear oral arguments Feb. 13. Jimmy Carter appointed Schroeder in 1979. She wrote an opinion in 2010 barring the testimony of a former Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative executive from Bonds' trial. Bonds was still convicted of giving misleading testimony about his steroid use to a grand jury. He appealed. Bill Clinton appointed Hawkins in 1994. President Barack Obama appointed Murguia in 2010.
