Eastern District of Virginia
Many of the US District Courts for particular districts have Redirects to the full name. The Eastern District of Virginia does not have such a redirect. --DThomsen8 (talk) 19:37, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
- Done . In the future, please feel free to be WP:BOLD and just create the redirect. TJRC (talk) 21:18, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
- Good question. Possibly because of historical reasons, and there once having been only a single district court for Virgina. TJRC (talk) 21:48, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khobar_Towers_bombing#Indictment shows the court has jurisdiction outside of the us, so much wider than 6 million people. It would be good to know HOW CAN THIS BE. What law is it based upon? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:16, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Orphaned references in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
Reference named "January 5 1864":
- From List of federal judges appointed by Abraham Lincoln: Recess appointment; formally nominated on January 5, 1864, confirmed by the United States Senate on January 20, 1864, and received commission on January 20, 1864.
- From List of judges of the United States District Court for the Districts of Virginia: Recess appointment; formally nominated on January 5, 1864, confirmed by the United States Senate on January 25, 1864, and received commission on January 25, 1864.
I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 19:54, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
