Brett H. Ludwig has just been appointed to a 14 year term on the Bankruptcy Courts for both the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin.
Judge Ludwig’s appointment restores the Eastern District to its complement of four judges that I’ve been accustomed to over the past ten years. When I first began practice, our courts were served by the Hon. Pamela Pepper, Margaret McGarity, Susan Kelley, and James Shapiro. In that time, Judge Pepper has been appointed/promoted to serve on the District Court, Judges Shapiro and McGarity have both retired, leaving Judge Kelly as the only remaining judge from when I began practice. And to replace the other three, G. Michael Halfenger, Beth Hanan, and now Brett Ludwig have all joined the court.
