Hon. J. Thomas Marten Announces Decision to Take Senior Status

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (June 8, 2016):  Chief Judge J. Thomas Marten has announced his intention to take senior status and to step down as Chief Judge of the District of Kansas, effective April 30, 2017.  
President Clinton named Judge Marten to fill a vacancy created by the departure of Judge Patrick Kelly in Wichita in October 1995; the Senate confirmed the appointment in January 1996.  He became the district’s Chief Judge in April 2014.
His successor will be appointed by the President of the United States, subject to confirmation by the United States Senate.  As the judges have no role in the appointment process, any person interested in applying for the judicial position should direct his or her inquiry to the White House, our senators and congresspersons or leaders of the political parties.
