Relying on available records, including Congressional and District of Columbia Judicial Nomination Commission (JNC or Commission) records, as well as notices published in the Daily Washington Law Reporter, the Commission is pleased to release this historic compilation of JNC recommendations made to the President of the United States, Presidential appointments to the District of Columbia courts, and the JNC’s designations of the Chief Judges for those courts.
On the occasion of this initial release of what is expected to be an annual publication, the Commission Chair, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, gives special recognition and expresses his appreciation to Executive Director Kim M. Whatley and Summer Intern Joseph R.A. Fruth for their tireless and meticulous efforts in researching and compiling this information, which spans forty years and encompasses the various branches of both the federal and District of Columbia governments. Judge Sullivan also thanks Addy Schmitt, Esquire, for first suggesting this project more than five years ago and devoting many hours since then to its completion, and to Executive Assistant Eunice Holt‐Martin for her assistance and support in this endeavor.
Questions concerning the Commission should be directed to the Executive Director at (202) 879-0478 or [email protected].
