Marjorie Rendell, a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and a former first lady of Pennsylvania.
The teams are competing for the Bettina M. Whyte Trophy - a beautiful etched crystal vase named to honor a past ABI President and leading restructuring professional with Alvarez & Marsal.
