Dear Friends and Colleagues:
It is with perhaps undue glee that I announce the end of my term as President of the Federal Bar Association's Southern District Chapter. I am delighted to invite you to the swearing-in of Phil Schatz as our next President, together with a new slate of officers, by the Honorable Loretta A. Preska, Chief Judge of the Southern District of New York. Phil is a litigator who is blessed with the skills of a very fine writer. He has been a regular contributor, inter alia, to the FBA's Federal Lawyer. We look forward to his messages and leadership over the next term.
The ceremonial event will take place on October 24th commencing at 5:00 p.m., at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse, 500 Pearl Street, New York, NY. There will be a wine and cheese reception in Room 850 immediately afterwards.
The FBA SDNY swearing-in ceremony has become a much celebrated annual event. For those who are in the NYC vicinity, I would be honored if you could attend. Please feel free to invite colleagues and friends. A flyer with details is posted below. We look forward to seeing you there.
Many thanks and best regards.
Simeon H. Baum, Esq., (outgoing pres)
