Vermont's Longest Serving Judge Retiring

Vermont's Longest Serving Judge Retiring

Vermont's longest serving judge is retiring this year after serving 18 years on the bench.
WASHINGTON - Vermont's longest serving judge is retiring this year after serving 18 years on the bench.

A press release says U.S. District Court Judge William Sessions will be taking senior status. This allows him to provide volunteer services for the court.

“I commend Judge Sessions for his years of service to our state and to this Nation. His commitment to the rule of law has made him among the most respected federal judges in the country," Sen. Patrick Leahy said.

Sessions was unanimously confirmed to the district court in 1995, and served as its chief judge from 2002 to 2010.

Judge Christina Reiss was recommended by Sen. Leahy to fill the position. A press release says President Barack Obama agreed with the recommendation and Reiss was eventually confirmed, becoming the first woman in Vermont to serve on the district court.
