In Appreciation of Third Circuit Senior Judge Aldisert

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit is about to lose another giant from its ranks, as Senior Judge Ruggero J. Aldisert announced recently that he is planning to retire entirely from judicial service in August. Aldisert joined the Third Circuit in July 1968, appointed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, and thus Aldisert will have served on the court for more than 46 years when he steps down this summer.
