    Candidate Name: Dame Clarisse Renaldi Bourgeon
    Home Nation: The Kingdom of Montenbourg
    Incumbent? (Y/N): N
    Biography: Clarisse Renaldi was an associate justice of the Royal Grand Court of the Kingdom of Montenbourg and former Justice of the European Court of Justice during Summer 2020 term. She was nominated by Prime Minister William Lipton on June 14, 1993 and has served since August 10, 1993. Renaldi became the second of four female justices to be confirmed to the Court after Laura Hush, the two others being Minerva Gonagall and Isidora Kagan, both of whom are still serving in 2020. Following Gonagall retirement in 2006 and until Kagan joined the Court in 2009, she was the only female justice on the Royal Court. During that time, Renaldi became more forceful with her dissents, which were noted by legal observers and in popular culture. She is generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the Court. Renaldi has authored notable majority opinions, including Obgerfell vs Hodges.
