Judge Smith Goes to Washington

Northampton County Judge Edward G. Smith, nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, will be in Washington today. He's scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee at 2:30 pm. You can see his appearance on C-SPAN.

On the bench since 2002, Judge Smith is also a Captain in the Navy who served in Iraq during the surge.

Though he's a brilliant judge, he thinks his most important job is being a father. He must be doing a good job at that because none of his three sons has any desire to be a lawyer.

Judge Smith is a good and honorable man and deserves this appointment. We are proud to have him as a native son. We wish him good luck at his hearing today.
