Gabriel Fuentes has been appointed as the Northern District of Illinois’ newest magistrate judge. Before going to Northwestern Law, Fuentes was a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. After law school, he served as an assistant U.S. Attorney before becoming a partner at Jenner & Block, where he handles antitrust criminal defense and civil cases. Judge Fuentes was “looking for a chance to focus my career back on public and government service,” and “was very humbled” to have been selected.
