Message from the National Leadership of the FBA: Magistrate Judge Michael J. Newman


Dear Friends of the Federal Bar Association,

It is with great excitement that I tell you about the FBA National Convention to be held this September, in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Westin Cleveland Downtown Hotel. The convention will be held on Thursday, September 15, through Saturday, September 17.

Prior to the convention—on Wednesday, September 14—the Northern District of Ohio FBA Chapter will host a special sitting of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. All are invited to attend and watch the arguments.

Thursday's events will begin with a morning of appellate CLE, hosted by Sixth Circuit Clerk of Courts, Deborah Hunt, and Sixth Circuit judges. The luncheon speaker will be Donald Verrilli, Jr., Solicitor General of the United States. Thursday evening will end with a cocktail reception at Progressive Field, the Cleveland Indians baseball stadium.

Friday's events will include a Supreme Court overview by Dean Erwin Chemerinsky; a keynote address by Ovie Carroll, head of the cybercrimes unit at the United States Department of Justice; and a reception at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On Saturday, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown will give a luncheon address, in addition to a naturalization ceremony on Saturday afternoon, performed by Ohio federal judges. United States Senator Rob Portman has been invited to be our keynote speaker at the dinner Saturday night. At the conclusion of the dinner, I will be sworn in as president—an honor that I am grateful for and humbled by.

Please join us in Cleveland. There are law student discounts available, and the FBA is working hard to make these events affordable so all law students can attend. Please contact Glen McMurry for more information: gmcmurry@dunganattorney.com or 937-339-0511.

Sincerely,
Judge Newman
