MBA Welcomes Seven
Federal Judges
By Cary L. Flitter, Esq., Chair, Federal Courts Practice Committee

O

n October 30, 2019 the MBA hosted seven Federal
Judges at the bar building. The event, sponsored by the
MBA's Federal Court Practice Committee, began with
a one-hour CLE followed by an hour meet-and-greet with MBA
members. Each of the new Eastern District of PA (E.D.Pa)
judges: Hon. Chad F. Kenney, Hon. Joshua D. Wolson, and
Hon. John Milton Younge took time to address the federal court
practitioners and speak to their particular policies, procedures
and protocols.
We were also visited by Chief Judge Juan R. Sánchez;
MBA Past President and current Federal Judge Hon. Mark A.
Kearney; Magistrate Judge Hon. Richard A. Lloret, and former
Montgomery County Judge now retired Federal Judge Hon.
William H. Yohn, Jr. I had the privilege of hosting the event
along with Gregory S. Voshell, Esq., of Elliott Greenleaf.
Chief Judge Sánchez shared his thoughts about the state
of the E.D.Pa and encouraged our members to participate in
pro bono undertakings that are available and that are especially
valuable for young practitioners looking to hone their federal
court practice skills. Judge Sánchez' full remarks are at right.

Good Morning Everyone:
Thank you very much for welcoming our court back to
Montgomery County. This is a great opportunity for us to meet
and greet each other and to share ideas about how we can do
better for our district population through the Bar Associations
and our courts. I am pleased that you will have the opportunity
to get to know the newest members of our court, two of whom
are already known to you from their service on the state bench
in Delaware and Philadelphia Counties. And I welcome the
opportunity to provide a brief update on recent developments
in our court. So thank you for taking time from your busy
schedules to share a few moments with us.
This is my second official visit to Montgomery County since
becoming Chief Judge just over a year ago. Since I last visited,
Judge Kenney, Judge Wolson, and Judge Younge have joined
our court. Two more nominations-AUSAs Karen Marston and
John Gallagher-are making their way through the confirmation
process. With these additional nominations, we are hopeful
that by year's end we will be up to 21 active district judges, just
one strike away from a full complement of active judges, along
