Retired Judges Corner

Retired Judges Corner

Aaron E. GoodsteinWelcome to the Retired Judges Corner. All may enter, without proof of age or judicial status. For example, I am retired, but working full-time on recall. As an attorney said to me recently, “Judge, you are giving retirement a bad name.” But I am here because I believe this area of the FMJA website will have a lot to offer retired and recalled magistrate judges.



Part-time Magistrate Judges

Part-time Magistrate Judge's Corner

In districts spread across the country, approximately 40 magistrate judges serve on a part-time basis. The fact that they work as part-time judges raises some administrative issues different from those faced by full-time judges.



Diversity Committee Statement

In an effort to increase diversity among the federal judiciary, the Federal Magistrate Judge’s Diversity Committee has formed sub-committees to prepare diversity panel presentations for FMJA Workshops in New Orleans, Louisiana, and San Diego, California. The New Orleans diversity panel presentation will consist of a ninety minute panel presentation and dialogue.
