Williams Retires

Sad news, as the Chief Judge of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, Karen Williams, is retiring due to a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's. Judge Williams, appointed to the bench by George H.W. Bush in 1992, is only 57 years old.

Alzheimer's is a very scary disease, and there is no known cure, so the best we can hope for is that Judge Williams' symptoms are kept in check for many years to come.
