Ages of Active Federal Circuit Judges - 2016


Click Here for a List of Current Federal Judicial Vacancies

As of January 20, 2017, there were 114 Federal court vacancies including the Supreme Court and district courts.

An additional 14 judges have announced that they will either retire or assume senior status between January 31, 2017 and September 29, 2017.

As you can see, the Federal appellate judiciary has many active judges who are advanced in age.  The average age of the Federal appellate judiciary is even more advanced when one factors in those “senior status” judges.  Senior status judges cannot assign the writing of a majority opinion and they cannot sit on en banc panels but they can sit on three judge panels where most of the damage done by the Federal courts happens.

President Trump’s appointments to the Federal Courts have the potential to change the Federal judiciary for a generation.  If he chooses wisely.
