List of federal judges appointed by Jimmy Carter

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Following is a list of all Article III United States federal judges appointed by President Jimmy Carter during his presidency.[1] In total Carter appointed 262 Article III federal judges, including 56 judges to the courts of appeals, 203 judges to the United States district courts, 1 judge to the United States Court of Claims and 2 judges to the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals. Later presidents have exceeded Carter's total number of judicial appointments, which had itself surpassed the previous record of 231 set by Richard Nixon, but Carter retains the record for the largest number of judicial appointments in a single term.

Although Carter made no appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States, two of his Court of Appeals appointees—Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg—were later appointed to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton.

Only one of Carter's appointees, Carmen Consuelo Cerezo of the District of Puerto Rico, remains on active status in the role to which Carter appointed her.
