Judge Stanley Marcus to Take Senior Status

After more than 20 years serving on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, Judge Stanley Marcus has announced his intention to retire in senior status. Judge Marcus is currently among the most senior active judges on the court, second only to Judge Gerald Tjoflat, who recently announced his own intention to take senior status. These retirements will pave the way for President Trump to make his fourth and fifth nominations to the Eleventh Circuit (having previously appointed judges Kevin Newsom, Elizabeth Branch, and Britt Grant).

Judge Marcus served as a U.S. district judge for the Southern District of Florida for 12 years before being elevated to the Eleventh Circuit by President Clinton in 1997. He will become a senior judge once his successor has been appointed, or no later than March 2, 2020.
