The Honorable Barry Ted Moskowitz

U.S. District Court, Southern District of California, Department 15B

Biography

The Hon. Barry Ted Moskowitz is a District Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. He was nominated by President Bill Clinton in June 1995 and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December 1995. He served as the Chief Judge of the Southern District beginning in 2012. Judge Moskowitz assumed senior status in January 2019. Prior to his elevation to the federal bench, he had served as a U.S. Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California since 1986.

Judge Moskowitz received his B.A. from Rutgers University in 1972. He went on to earn his J.D. from Rutgers Law School in 1975.

Moskowitz served a year-long clerkship with the Hon. Leonard I. Garth after graduating from law school. Then, after completing his clerkship, he became an assistant U.S. Attorney with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of New Jersey in 1976. He would hold that position until 1982.

It was at that time that Moskowitz left the public sector to enter into private practice in Wayne, New Jersey, where he remained for three years.

Then, in 1985, after relocating to San Diego, California, Moskowitz joined the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of California. After only a year as an assistant U.S. Attorney, he was selected to serve as a magistrate judge for the Southern District.

During his tenure as Chief Judge of the Southern District, Judge Moskowitz was instrumental in relocating a daycare center for the children of federal employees to federal property. The new daycare center was named in his honor.

Judge Moskowitz was born in Paterson, New Jersey.
