A former graduate of Petersburg High School and Virginia State University will make history tomorrow (7/9) as he becomes the Chief Judge of the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Judge Roger L. Gregory went on to graduate from the University of Michigan Law School and was a law partner with L. Douglas Wilder. He was originally appointed to the court by two presidents of different parties.
His selection comes because of his seniority on the court. It becomes effective tomorrow.
