Hellman Talks to SF Chronicle about the Late Chief Judge James Browning
Pitt Law Professor Arthur Hellman recently discussed the legacy of the late Chief Judge James Browning with the San Francisco Chronicle. "He was the architect of the modern Ninth Circuit," noted Hellman. Hellman went on to add that Browning created innovations in case management, persuaded judges to work together despite differing views, and helped to create the disciplinary system for federal judges. Judge Browning was appointed in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy and led a campaign against the proposed breakup of the Ninth Circuit years later. Read more here.
