Hon. Solomon Oliver Jr.
Federal Bar Association
Ask any individual what word comes to mind upon hearing the name Solomon, and he or she is certain to declare "wisdom." Inquire of any persons-lawyers and non-lawyers alike-what word comes to mind upon hearing the name Solomon Oliver Jr., and one is also certain to hear the term "wisdom," plus a whole other set of adjectives and nouns that describe the current chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in exceptionally glowing terms. A small sampling of these praising and admiring descriptors include words such as "impartial," "fair," "respectful," "highly intelligent," "good-hearted," "hard-working," "guardian of the Constitution," "excellent role model," "the consummate mentor," "a trailblazer," "a thoughtful but no-nonsense judge," and "an inspirational figure."
