John Fisher, an Associate Judge since 2005 on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, served more than two decades in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C., where he rose to chief of the Appellate Division.  His oral history discusses his role in crafting appellate briefs, training and assisting scores of colleagues, and personally handling the appeals for some of the Office’s most significant prosecutions, including of Congressman Dan Rostenkowski for corruption and Jonathan Pollard for espionage.  Jack Geise, a member of the Historical Society Board and a former AUSA who worked with him, summarizes Judge Fisher’s oral history.
