Arthur J. Tuttle (November 8, 1868 – December 2, 1944) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Leslie, Michigan, Tuttle received a Ph.B. from the University of Michigan in 1892 and an LL.B. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1895. He was in private practice in Leslie, Michigan and Lansing, Michigan from 1895 to 1899. He was a Prosecuting attorney of Ingham County, Michigan from 1899 to 1902 and a member of the Michigan State Senate from 1907 to 1910. He was a United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan from 1911 to 1912.[1]

On August 2, 1912, Tuttle was nominated by President William Howard Taft to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan vacated by Alexis Caswell Angell. Tuttle was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 6, 1912, and received his commission the same day. Tuttle served in that capacity until his death, in 1944.
