Judge Chagares Becomes Chief Judge Chagares

As of December 4, as stated here, New Jersey’s own Judge Chagares became Chief Judge of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. That occurred as a result of the fact that his predecessor, Chief Judge Smith, reached age 70, the age at which one must step down from the position of Chief Judge. Judge Smith had led the court since 2016.

Congratulations to Chief Judge Chagares!
