Barry, a Republican, was a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit until her retirement in 2019. She was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey in 1983 by then-President Ronald Reagan and to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia in 1999 by then-President Bill Clinton.
