Prost – Moore – Chen

With Chief Judge Rader stepping down as Chief Judge later this month, it would appear that the line of succession for Chief Judge will be 1) Judge Prost; 2) Judge Moore; and 3) Judge Chen.  This assumes that Judge Prost serves until her 70th birthday and that Judge Moore serves as Chief Judge for a full seven year term.  Incidentally, it appears from Judge Prost’s Wikipedia entry that she had a birthday this past Saturday.  So, she will turn 70 a week shy of a full seven year term.  Chief Judges may serve a seven year term or until they reach the age of 70.
