I am honored and humbled that the President has designated me to serve as Chief Judge of the Court of Federal Claims. I want to thank Judge Roumel for her outstanding service as Chief through a very challenging period of time and for her friendship and support. Fortunately, Judge Roumel isn’t going anywhere, and it is my intention to rely on her expertise and that of my colleagues and the rest of the Court family as I begin my tenure as Chief Judge.
The Bar Association provides its members numerous educational opportunities and opportunities for practitioners to meet and interact with the judges of the Court and colleagues from both public and private practice for these purposes. Our members work closely with the Court’s judges to develop programs, contribute to revisions of the Court’s Rules, and organize a broad range of educational and other activities.
