The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri dedicated its new Judicial Education and History Center in the Rush Hudson Limbaugh Sr. U.S. Courthouse in Cape Girardeau on April 30. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Representative Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO) spoke at the event, which included a naturalization ceremony for 14 new U.S. citizens.
According to Clerk of Court James Woodward, the center will showcase the history and function of the federal courts in the Eastern District of Missouri, and also tell the story of Rush Limbaugh Sr., who practiced law in Missouri for nearly 80 years. His grandson, Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Jr., is the first federal judge to work full-time in the Cape Girardeau courthouse.
