  • President Barack Obama announced that he has appointed Judge Patricia E. Campbell-Smith to be the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

    Judge Campbell-Smith would be the first African American to be chief judge of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.  Her designation as chief judge does not need Senate confirmation and takes effect immediately.

    “I am proud to designate Judge Campbell-Smith to serve as chief judge on the United States Court of Federal Claims,” said President Obama.  “She has a long and distinguished record of service, and I am confident she will serve with distinction.”

    Judge Patricia E. Campbell-Smith currently serves on the United States Court of Federal Claims.  Previously, she served as a Special Master with the United States Court of Federal Claims from 2005 to 2011 and as Chief Special Master from 2011 to 2013.
