Sixth Circuit Expected to Welcome New Chief Judge in August

Chief Judge Alice Batchelder will step down from that post in August and turn the reins the over to Judge Guy Cole.  The chief judge  has substantial administrative responsibilities at the Circuit, and it will be interesting to see if any changes are underway after Judge Cole assumes the position.  This will also be the second chief judge in a row from Ohio, following two successive Kentucky chief judges.
