New Newark Immigration Judge Frederick Leeds

According to the EOIR web site, a new immigration judge is Frederick Leeds. This comes shortly after the retirement of Judge Strasser. The new judge probably would not start hearing cases until April 2006 (at the earliest). I did not see information on the EOIR web site describing Judge Leeds.

Update: in September 2006, EOIR listed information about Judge Leeds when he was sworn in. Warning: I cannot vouch for the accuracy of EOIR's posting. Please take the following as conveying EOIR's viewpoint, not that it is necessarily accurate.
Frederic G. Leeds was appointed as an immigration judge in March 2006. He received a bachelor of arts degree in 1983 from Columbia University and a
juris doctorate in 1987 from American University Washington College of Law.
From September 1998 to March 2006, Judge Leeds was in private practice in
Freehold, NJ. During this time, he served as a state and federal court arbitrator, court mediator, and a contract hearing officer for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Administrative Office of the Federal Courts. Judge Leeds also served as trial attorney from May 1997 to September 1998 with the Law Offices of Edward Hoagland in Somerset; from July 1996 to April 1997, with the Law Offices of Craig Terkowitz in Piscataway; and from June 1989 to March 1996, with
the Public Service Electric and Gas Company in Newark. From September 1988 to March 1989, Judge Leeds was an associate in the Law Offices of Leonard Franco. He is a member of the New Jersey, District of Columbia, and New York bars.
