Andrew David "Andy" Hurwitz (born October 1947) is a United States Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Education and clerkships[edit]

Judge Hurwitz graduated cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Princeton University in 1968 with an A.B. in Public and International Affairs.[1] While at Princeton he earned the ignomious distinction of participating in the longest winless streak of the men's soccer team, as part of the 0-7-3 squad in 1966.[2]

He earned his J.D. from Yale Law School in 1972, where he served as a member of the Board of Editors[3] and the Note and Comment Editor[4] of the Yale Law Journal.[1]

After earning his law degree from Yale, he clerked for Judge Jon O. Newman of the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.[5] He went on to clerk for Judge J. Joseph Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.[1]

From 1973 to 1974 he clerked for Associate Justice Potter Stewart of the United States Supreme Court.[6]

Legal and political career[edit]

Before joining the court, Justice Hurwitz practiced law in Phoenix for nearly 30 years. He was a partner at Osborn Maledon from 1995–2003, and an associate and partner at the predecessor firm Meyer Hendricks Victor Osborn & Maledon from 1974 to 1980 and from 1983 to 1995.[1] Hurwitz's practice included commercial litigation, administrative law, and government affairs, but he was best known[according to whom?] as one of the most skilled appellate specialists in Arizona.[citation needed]

Perhaps his most notable case as an appellate attorney came in 2002, when he successfully argued Ring v. Arizona before the United States Supreme Court.[7] Representing Timothy Ring and several other death row inmates, he argued that in murder cases the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial requires juries, rather than judges, to make factual determinations that aggravating circumstances exist to qualify defendants for the death penalty. The Supreme Court agreed in a 7-2 decision that dramatically altered capital sentencing in Arizona and a number of other states.

From 1980 to 1983 he took a break from the practice of law to serve as chief of staff to Governor Bruce Babbitt.[1] Among the projects he worked on for Gov. Babbitt was the creation of the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), an innovative program to control Medicaid costs.[8] His experience in the governor's office led then-Secretary of State Rose Mofford to tap Hurwitz to lead her transition team during the 1988 impeachment of Governor Evan Mecham.[9] When Mofford became governor after Mecham's conviction and removal from office, Hurwitz served as her chief of staff.[10] He also served as co-chair of the transition team for Governor Janet Napolitano.[1]

In addition to serving three governors, Justice Hurwitz has long been known for his commitment to public service. He has served as an adjunct and visiting professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University frequently since 1977, teaching Ethics, Supreme Court Litigation, Legislative Process, Civil Procedure, and Federal Courts, among other classes.[1] He also served as a member of the Arizona Board of Regents overseeing the state's public university system from 1988 to 1996, including a term as president of the Board from 1992 to 1993.[1][11] He chaired two City of Phoenix committees focused on neighborhood improvement and street environment from 1986 to 1990.[1] He also served on the boards of directors for the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest (1986–1988) and the Children's Action Alliance (1999–2003).[1]

Judicial career[edit]

Justice Hurwitz was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court in 2003 by Governor Janet Napolitano, replacing former Chief Justice Stanley G. Feldman.[12] In the 2006 election, he received another six-year term, with more than 77% of Arizona voters casting ballots in favor of his retention in office.[13]

In March 2009 he was elected to serve a five-year term as Vice Chief Justice when Justice Rebecca White Berch was elected Chief Justice.[14]

Notable opinions authored by Justice Hurwitz include:

  • Citizen Publishing Co. v. Miller ex rel Elleithee (2005) holding that a newspaper that ran a letter to the editor advocating the random murder of Muslims in retaliation for American deaths in the Iraq War could not be sued for intentional infliction of emotional distress because the letter qualified as political speech protected by the First Amendment;
  • Kromko v. Arizona Board of Regents (2007), dismissing a lawsuit alleging that a university tuition increase violated the constitutional requirement that education be "as nearly free as possible" as a nonjusticiable political question;
  • The Lofts at Fillmore v. Reliance Commercial (2008), holding that homebuilders can be sued by buyers for breach of the implied warranty of workmanship and habitability even if the homebuilder did not sell the home to the buyer;
  • Seisinger v. Siebel (2009), holding that a statutory requirement for expert witnesses in medical malpractice cases did not violate the constitutional separation of powers doctrine;
  • Turken v. Gordon (2010), commonly known as the "CityNorth" case, which clarified the requirements of the Gift Clause of the Arizona Constitution.

In addition to his judicial duties, Justice Hurwitz also serves as a member of the Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Evidence. He was appointed to the advisory committee by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist in 2004, and reappointed by Chief Justice John Roberts in 2007.[14] He is a member of the American Law Institute (since 2002) and a master of the Horace Rumpole Inn of Court (since 1997).[14]

Justice Hurwitz also continues to teach civil procedure to first-year law students at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.[15]

Prior to his appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court, Justice Hurwitz served as Judge Pro Tempore for Division 1 of the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1994, 1996, and 1998.[1]

Nomination to the Ninth Circuit[edit]

On November 2, 2011, President Obama nominated Hurwitz to be a United States Appeals Court judge for the Ninth Circuit.[16] On January 26, 2012, he received a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and on March 1, 2012, his nomination was reported to the floor of the Senate by a vote of 13 ayes to 5 nays.[17] All ten Democratic Senators voted aye along with Republican Senators Tom Coburn, Lindsey Graham and Jon Kyl, while Republican Senators John Cornyn, Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Mike Lee and Jeff Sessions voted no.[18]

On June 7, 2012, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed for cloture on Hurwitz's nomination. On June 11, 2012, cloture was invoked by a vote of 60 ayes to 31 nays.[19] On June 12, 2012, he was confirmed by voice vote and received his commission on June 27, 2012.[19][20]

Personal[edit]

He is a native of Boonton, New Jersey, having moved there with his family at the age of 3[21] and a graduate of Boonton High School.[citation needed] He is married to Dr. Sally Hurwitz, an associate dean at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University.[22]
