Eastern District Judge Jack Weinstein received a unique honor on Thursday to mark his 50th year on a federal bench—a ceremonial courtroom in the Brooklyn federal courthouse was named in his honor.

Judges, former clerks, lawyers, and family members attended the unveiling of the newly-named courtroom and celebration of Weinstein’s golden anniversary as an Eastern District judge.
