New databases: Almanac of the Federal Judiciary and The American Bench
The Library now subscribes to two online directories of judges: The American Bench: Judges of the Nation and the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary. The American Bench has biographies and contacts for 20,000 state and federal judges at all levels. The Almanac of the Federal Judiciary has biographies of every active federal judge. The Almanac of the Federal Judiciary provides "balanced, responsible judicial profiles of every federal judge and all the key bankruptcy judges and magistrate judges -- profiles that include reliable inside information based on interviews with lawyers who have argued cases before the federal judiciary."
