A display celebrating Judge John Daniel Tinder's career has been installed in the main hall of the first floor of the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse in Indianapolis. The display, which features a collection of awards, photographs, presidential commissions, and other ephemera, will be in place until August 15. Judge Tinder has served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit since 2007. He served on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana from 1987 until his elevation, and prior to that was United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana (1984-1987).
Judge Tinder has announced his retirement effective later this summer, and the display is a fun opportunity for the public and staff to reflect on Judge Tinder's lengthy career in public service.
