AVENTURA,The Western District of Texas welcomed its newest judge Friday to a San Antonio seat that has been vacant for more than a decade.
Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia swore in Jason K. Pulliam in a full courtroom that included Pulliam’s former employers, friends and other supporters.
Pulliam, 48, becomes the first African-American appointed to the Western District, which includes San Antonio, Austin, Waco, Del Rio, Alpine, Pecos, Midland/Odessa and El Paso. With Pulliam, the district now has 13 district judges, who are appointed by the president for life, five senior district judges and 15 magistrate judges, who are chosen by the district judges to serve eight-year terms.
