Many of the highlights of the 200-year history of the Courts of the D.C. Circuit are revealed in an exhibition prepared by the Historical Society for the Courts. The exhibition was unveiled at the opening of the William B. Bryant Annex to the Courthouse.
Ten display panels which capture the Courts’ history include photographs, articles, and text on the creation of the Courts and many of their high-profile cases as well as a tribute to Judge William Benson Bryant, who was appointed to the U.S. District Court in 1965, served as the Court’s Chief Judge, and was one of the Court’s most respected judges.
The exhibit can be viewed in the Great Hall of the Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse today at 333 Constitution Avenue, Washington, D.C. 20001.
