Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains materials from Judge Tuttle’s extensive service on the administrative committees and governing bodies of the United States courts. It includes materials related to meetings of the 5th and 11th Circuit Judicial Councils and Conferences, and the Judicial Conference of the United States as well as a rich volume of material from the committees appointed by the United States Judicial Conference.

The Judicial Conference of the Circuit consists of all of the judges and magistrates within the Circuit, meeting periodically to discuss management and administrative matters while the Council is composed of an equal number of appeals and district court judges from within the circuit, serving as the administrative government of the Circuit. Both are required by federal statute to meet periodically, and records of those 5th Circuit meetings are present. Also present are materials from the Judicial Conference of the United States. As the governing body for the Judicial branch, it is composed of the Chief Justice of the United States, the Chief Judges of the regional and specialized Courts of Appeal and the Court of International Trade, and district judges elected from each Circuit. The Judicial Conference of the United States performs much of its work through appointed committees composed mainly of various members of the federal judiciary. Tuttle’s activity in this work, particularly in the years after he took Senior Status and peaking in the mid-1970s, is documented here.

The bulk of this subseries consists of records and correspondence from committees of the Judicial Conference of which Tuttle was a member. The Advisory Committee on Judicial Activities, which Tuttle chaired for many years, and the Joint Committee chaired by Judges Tuttle and Tamm, are of special note. The Joint Committee is at times referred to as the Joint Committee on Judicial Ethics or, when a more specific purpose was envisioned, as the Joint Committee on the Code of Judicial Conduct. It is here filed as Joint Committee.

There is a great deal of correspondence, including carbon copied outgoing correspondence, in the various committee files, along with drafts, memos, and reports documenting the administrative workings of the United States judicial system.
