Russian Supreme Court Justice Tours Federal Judiciary
This fall, the Library of Congress’ Open World program brought together
Administrative Office Director James C. Duff, Justice Yuriy Ivanovich Sidorenko
of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation and Chairman of the Council of
Judges of the Russian Federation, and Judge Robert H. Henry (10th Cir.), chair
of the Judicial Conference Committee on International Judicial Relations.
The Open World program brings small delegations of leaders from Eurasia to
the United States to see American-style democracy in action. While in
Washington, DC, Justice Sidorenko met with Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.
and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, laid a wreath on the grave of Justice William
H. Rehnquist, and met with current and former members of the Judicial Conference
International Judicial Relations Committee. After leaving DC, Sidorenko was
hosted in Peoria, Illinois, by Judge Michael Mihm (C.D. Ill.), in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, by Henry, and in Las Vegas, Nevada, by Judge Lloyd George (D. Nev.).
