Maura Corrigan, 57
The Michigan Supreme Court justice is a walking billboard for the conservative mantra of judicial restraint -- the notion that judges should stick to interpreting the law and not making it. Her resume includes a number of firsts, among them: first woman to serve as chief assistant US attorney in Detroit, first woman to serve as chief judge of the Michigan Court of Appeals.
