Picture[edit]

Is it necessary to have Roberts? Could we put a more generic picture/logo/symbol up? —ScouterSig 22:43, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Roberts Symbol[edit]

It is wholly unnecessary to use the current Chief Justice of the United States as a symbol to represent ALL judges. I suggest that you either design an original graphic to represent justice in general such as this:

Scales of justice.jpg


It would thereby make the stub template appear as:

Pics[edit]

The current symbol is also used for a number of things, could we put up someone like Marshal? He's been gone long enough I don't think people would see him as being a partizan symbol. 68.39.174.238 (talk) 10:20, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Judge "of the" United States[edit]

Because of the United States's federalist system, not all judges in the United States are "judges of the United States." That term is reserved for judges in the United States Federal Courts, who are appointed at the federal level. Judges in state courts are either elected or appointed by the governor of the state, and they are never referred to as "judges of the United States." I've changed the template to "judge in the United States" for accuracy. agtx 13:36, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
