Swearing In


Newly confirmed U.S. District Judge Mark A. Goldsmith, Eastern District of Michigan, was sworn-in in a private ceremony July 26 by Chief Judge Gerald E. Rosen. In June 2009, U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin recommended Goldsmith, an Oakland County Circuit Court judge since 2004, to President Barack Obama for nomination to the federal court to fill the vacancy of U.S. District Judge John Corbett O’Meara. On June 21, the U.S. Senate confirmed Goldsmith, and he received his commission the following day.

A formal investiture will be held in the fall.
