We have just learned from Patricia Levy, Counsel for the Committee on Federal-State Jurisdiction of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (the “Committee”) ,  that the Honorable Judge Richard Clifton has designated the American Judicature Society as the recipient of a gift from the Committee’s Staff. The gift is made in recognition of Judge Clifton’s distinguished service as Chair of the Committee.

Over the years, Judge Clifton has been a valuable, helpful, and loyal supporter of AJS serving as a board member and an active participant on numerous committees.  This generous gift is yet another example of Judge Clifton’s  longstanding commitment to AJS.   On behalf of all members of the board and of AJS, thank you Judge Clifton and the Staff of the Committee on Federal-State Jurisdiction of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
