Chief Judges

Unlike the chief justice of the Supreme Court, a chief judge of a federal court assumes that position through seniority. In order to become a chief judge, a judge must satisfy the following conditions: (1) the judge must be 64 years of age or younger; (2) the judge must have served for at least one year on the bench; and (3) the judge must not have served previously as a chief judge.
