Passing of The Honorable James F. Schneider

It is with great sadness that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland announces that the Honorable James F. Schneider passed away on April 6, 2020 at his residence. Judge Schneider retired from the Bench on May 9, 2017, after more than 35 years of dedicated service to the Court. He was immediately recalled and continued to serve as a recalled Bankruptcy Judge until his passing. Judge Schneider was a tremendous public servant, a highly respected jurist, always kind, and loved by all. A Memorial Service will be conducted virtually on Wednesday, April 15.  Information on how to view that service can be found in the Notice of Judge Schneider’s passing below.
