PHILADELPHIA (AP) - U.S. Judge Marjorie Rendell plans to take senior status in July as a federal appellate judge in Philadelphia.

Rendell tells The Legal Intelligencer that she still expects to remain busy at the 3rd U.S .Circuit Court of Appeals.

She had been on the court since her 1997 appointment by former President Bill Clinton.

Rendell also served as first lady of Pennsylvania when husband Ed Rendell served as governor from 2003 to 2011.

Her written opinions include a finding that CBS should not be fined $550,000 for Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Super Bowl.

The 3rd Circuit hears cases from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
