Combine with Active Judges[edit]

I suggest combining this template with the template listing the active judges. The active judges and senior judges serve together on panels hearing cases and it would make sense to show them all in the same place. There is really very little reason to have a separate list of senior judges, as they do not collectively serve any particular function (unlike the active judges, who participate in en banc rehearings). Perhaps this could be accomplished simply by listing the senior judges' names in italics after the names of the active judges, or something along those lines.

I figured out how to do it. I've updated the other template accordingly, and it can now be used for active and senior judge bios. I would suggest doing the same for the district judge lists. Terence7 (talk) 01:56, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
