Congratulations—Longest Serving District Judge in US History

August 2018—The Honorable District Judge William J. Nealon is now the longest serving federal district judge in the history of the Federal Judiciary of the United States.

President John F. Kennedy appointed Judge Nealon to the Middle District of Pennsylvania in 1962. Judge Nealon spent more time in one appointment than any other federal judge in US history.

The Lackwanna Bar Association warmly congratulates Judge Nealon for his service to the judiciary and to our community.
