Bill to name courtroom after late judge passes U.S. House

Posted: July 25, 2012 - 11:06pm

The U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation this week to name the federal courtroom in Juneau after the late Judge Robert Boochever.

U.S. Rep. Don Young, who is sponsoring the bill, said in a release that the bill passed Monday. It now awaits action in the U.S. Senate.

“Naming the Juneau courtroom is a fitting tribute to a great man and a great Alaskan,” Young said in a statement.

The courtroom is located on the top floor of the U.S. Federal Building on West Ninth Street in downtown Juneau.

Boochever served as chief justice for the Alaska Supreme Court, and he became the first Alaskan to serve on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 1980. He died in October.
