HBA-DC Celebrates Judge Urbina, Launches Judicial Council

Tuesday, June 14, 2011  

On Thursday, June 9, over 150 people, including Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, attended the HBA-DC's celebration of U.S. District Court Judge Ricardo Urbina's distinguished 30 years on the bench. Judge Urbina was joined by his current and former law clerks, who recalled not only Judge Urbina's keen understanding of the law but also his generosity, humanity, and sense of justice. The HBA-DC presented Judge Urbina with an autographed seal from the organization as well as a framed photo of the view of Pennsylvania Avenue from his chambers.

 

The occasion also marked the formal convocation of the new HBA-DC Judicial Council, which provides a forum for consideration of matters of importance to Hispanic members of the Judiciary.
