Administrative Conference Mourns the Passing of Judge Stephen F. Williams
Washington, D.C., August 11, 2020 – The Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) mourns the passing of Judge Stephen F. Williams, a distinguished and devoted member of ACUS for many years. At the time of his death, Judge Williams was one of a dozen federal judges serving as an ACUS senior fellow.
“Despite his full-time judicial duties, Judge Williams contributed immeasurably to nearly every one of our plenary sessions,” said Matthew Lee Wiener, ACUS’s Acting Chair. “He contributed not only his formidable intellect and knowledge of administrative law, but also, through his example, valued lessons in civility and respect for the perspectives of others.”
Please read ACUS's full statement, which includes tributes from ACUS members and those who worked with him at ACUS.
