As it turned out, the Trum-appointed judge is not retiring. Recently, there were rumors of the resignation of the US Federal Claims Court judge Stephen Schwartz, who had served in court for less than a year. It happened on Wednesday this week.
The administrative office confirmed the error, saying that the erroneous statement came from its chambers in Washington, DC. Then, in the vacancy column, it mistakenly indicated that Schwartz was leaving the bench on November 1.
In fact, he sent a notice that he was picking up the retirement plan coming into force. It was erroneously entered as a declaration of retirement. Now the error has been corrected and the lists are being corrected.
Already on Wednesday morning, the data was changed on the site and it was understood that the judge is not retiring. As you know, the site is updated daily. When Schwartz began to receive letters and a request to comment on the news of the discharge, he did not respond to messages. After, representatives of his chambers denied his dismissal.
