Thereafter, in September 1999, President Bill Clinton appointed her as Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

She became Senior Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in June 2011.
It was alleged that she participated in fraudulent tax schemes with her siblings and thus violated judicial conduct rules leading to an investigation.
