Edward Coke Billings
Edward Coke Billings (December 3, 1829 – December 1, 1893) was a United States federal judge.
On January 10, 1876, Billings was nominated by President Ulysses Grant to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana vacated by E.H. Durell. Billings was confirmed by the United States Senate on February 10, 1876, and received his commission the same day. He was technically reassigned by operation of law to a reconfigured version of the same court on March 3, 1881.
Nominated to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in 1881, his nomination failed in Senate, and he remained on the district court until his death, in 1893, in New Haven, Connecticut.
