Dominck L. DiCarlo Memorial Lecture on the U.S. Court of International Trade
Chief Judge Timothy C. Stanceu of the U.S. Court of International Trade is giving the Dominick L. DiCarlo Memorial Lecture today at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Four graduates from The John Marshall Law School have been law clerks at the U.S. Court of International Trade, including three graduates who clerked for former Chief Judge Dominick L. DiCarlo.
Among other issues he discussed, Judge Stanceu mentioned difficulties the U.S. Court of International Trade faces by the failure to have a full court. The President, with the advice and consent of the Senate, appoints the nine judges who constitute the United States Court of International Trade, which is a national court established under Article III of the Constitution. Presently there are four vacancies unfilled on the U.S. Court of International Trade.
The judges, who are appointed for life, as are all judges of Article III courts, may be designated and assigned temporarily by the Chief Justice of the United States to perform judicial duties in a United States Court of Appeals or a United States District Court.
Dominick L. DiCarlo (1928-1999) was an American lawyer and politician from New York. He was a member of the New York State Assembly from 1965 to 1981. He was President Ronald Reagan's first Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics Matters from 1981 to 1984. He was a judge of the United States Court of International Trade from 1984 to 1999.
Timothy C. Stanceu, the current Chief Judge for the U.S. Court of International Trade, received his Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center. He worked as a program analyst and environmental protection specialist for the United States Environmental Protection Agency from 1974 to 1982. He served as special assistant to the assistant secretary in the Office of Enforcement and Operations of the United States Department of the Treasury from 1982 to 1985. He served as Deputy Director of the Office of Trade and Tariff Affairs for the Treasury Department from 1986 to 1989. He worked in private practice in Washington, D.C. from 1990 to 2003, when President Bush nominated him to serve as a Judge for the United States Court of International Trade, to the seat vacated by Judge Richard W. Goldberg. He was elevated to Chief Judge on July 1, 2014 after Donald C. Pogue assumed senior status.
