Stanley Marcus (born March 27, 1946) is a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

Early life, education and legal training

Judge Marcus was born and raised in New York City. He earned a bachelor's degree from Queens College, City University of New York, magna cum laude, in 1967. He earned his law degree from the Harvard Law School in 1971. Marcus also served on active duty in the U.S. Army in 1969, and served in the Army Reserve through 1974.[1]

Legal career

Marcus clerked for U.S. District Judge [2]

Federal judicial service

Marcus was nominated on June 20, 1985 by President Reagan to a newly created district judge seat at the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. He was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 16, 1985 and was sworn in on August 16, 1985, according to a September 26, 1997 article in the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel.

President Clinton nominated Marcus to the Eleventh Circuit on September 25, 1997, after a previous Clinton nominee for the seat, Charles "Bud" Stack, had withdrawn his name from consideration after his background was raised as an issue by Bob Dole during the 1996 presidential election.[3] Even though the U.S. Senate at that time was controlled by Republicans, Marcus' nomination was considered to be very uncontroversial. The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted in favor of Marcus' nomination on November 6, 1997, and the full Senate unanimously confirmed him on November 7, 1997. "I'm deeply honored," Marcus told the Miami Herald in a brief interview in an article that appeared on November 8, 1997.

Judge Marcus is a member of the Judicial Conference Committee on Federal-State Jurisdiction and has been the committee's chairman since 1992.[4]

Personal life

Marcus' wife is Judy. They have two children, Jonathan and Elizabeth. Jonathan is a medical professional in Rochester, NY. Judge Marcus is a known movie buff. Marcus teaches Religion and the Constitution and Trial Advocacy at Brooklyn Law School.[5]
