U.S. Circuit Judge Merrick B. Garland on Tuesday became the new chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.   He moved into that position after Chief Judge David B. Sentelle finished his term at the head of the Court.  Judge Sentelle took senior status, and will continue to sit in that capacity.  A press release from the Circuit Court can be read here.
