Senior United States District Judge John Curtin is shifting away from active duty after nearly a half-century of service. Curtin rose to the federal bench in 1967 through an appointment by President Lyndon Johnson. The highly honored judge is a graduate of Canisius College and the UB Law School. He is also a veteran of the US Marine Corps.

According to WGRZ, Curtin will be moving to "inactive senior status" at the conclusion of business on Tuesday.
