Hanging judge on the appellate court

A lawyer tells me that I had bad luck in drawing appellate judges. There are seven judges on the court, and each case gets three at random. I got Patricia Bamattre-Manoukian, Nathan D. Mihara, and Richard J. McAdams. Bamattre-Manoukian almost never grants any relief to anyone, unless the petition is actually endorsed by the prosecutor.
