Judge William Pryor Becomes Chief Judge of Eleventh Circuit

The Eleventh Circuit welcomed a new chief judge this week, as the Hon. William H. Pryor Jr. replaced the Hon. Ed Carnes in that role on the latter’s seventieth birthday, in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 45. Judge Carnes had previously given notice of his intention to take senior status, and District Judge Andrew Brasher (of the Middle District of Alabama) has already been confirmed to replace Judge Carnes as an active circuit judge.
