At the time of both appointments, he was the youngest federal judge in the U.S. Before being appointed to the federal bench, Judge Lewis served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania and as an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Judge Lewis serves on the advisory board for The Peter Jennings Project for Journalism and the Constitution and The Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia; the board of directors for The Constitution Project and the American Arbitration Association; and is a member of the CPR Institute and American Law Institute; and a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. He also was recognized by The National Law Journal as one of publication’s 2010 “Champions and Visionaries,” which honors attorneys who have gone the extra mile to enhance the business of law and ensure justice is done.
