The Criminal Law Section of The Florida Bar is proud to present UFFERMAN FILES, a series of important conversations and presentations on all things criminal justice, featuring host Michael Ufferman of the Michael Ufferman Law Firm in Tallahassee.
Judge Batchelder, who was considered by President George W. Bush as a potential nominee for Justice Sandra Day O’connor’s seat, has served on the federal bench for almost 40 years. She was appointed to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in 1983, elevated to the federal District Court in 1985, and then to the federal Court of Appeals in 1992, serving as Chief Judge for the Sixth Circuit from 2009 to 2014. Their conversation promises to explore a wide range of topics, including Judge Batchelder’s perspectives on our criminal justice system — and our courts in general — the process for selecting and confirming federal judges, and the importance of an independent judiciary.
