How Appealing

Effective today, R. Guy Cole is the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit: Opinions issued today (see here and here) confirm the change, as do that court’s own listing of judges and Wikipedia.

At present, the Federal Judicial Center’s biographical database still lists Alice M. Batchelder as the Sixth Circuit’s chief judge. According to her Wikipedia entry, former Chief Judge Batchelder turned 70 today, and thus became statutorily ineligible to continue serving as that circuit’s chief judge.
