Appointment of Bankruptcy Judges

26 Oct Appointment of Bankruptcy Judges

Bankruptcy Judges are appointed for terms of 14 years by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the circuit in which the bankruptcy court is located. Bankruptcy judges are not judges under Article III of the Constitution, but like federal magistrate judges preside over Article I tribunals.

However, bankruptcy judges serve as judicial officers of the United States District Court under which they are established. The district courts are United States Courts under Article III of the Constitution. Bankruptcy judges serve their term unless they resign, retire, are removed, or die. A bankruptcy judge can only be removed for incompetence, misconduct, neglect of duty, or physical or mental disability.
