D.C. Court of Appeals Judge John Terry is retiring because he wants to, not because he has to. Terry, who won’t hit the court’s mandatory retirement age of 74 until next year, says he is voluntarily seeking senior status. “I have been on the bench for 23 years and it is just time,” Terry says, noting he doesn’t have a firm date for leaving. His departure will continue a period of transition for the District’s highest court. Judge Noel Kramer was sworn in just two months ago, and John Fisher is expected to officially join the court before the end of the year. In addition, Chief Judge Eric Washington took over leadership of the court this summer after Chief Judge Annice Wagner retired. More changes are on the way, as Judge Frank Schwelb will also reach the mandatory retirement age next year.
