► U.S. Judge Herman Weber of Columbus: Ohio’s 2018 District Court Geezer Award Winner


The state of Ohio presented Herman Jacob Weber with a law license in 1952 after he graduated from Ohio State University School of Law.


This annual award is presented to the Ohio District Court judge who has distinguished himself or herself by refusing to retire from the bench even though in most instances they are holder than dirt.


The 2018 Geezer award winner’s attributes are as follows.

  • 92-years-old – DOB 1927
  • Appointed by Pres. Reagan to District Court in 1985
  • Assumed senior status on January 1, 2002

It should be noted that Herman’s choice to take on senior status meant that he was only required to work 10 hours a week while continuing to collect 100% of a full-time judge’s annual salary, which as of 2019 would be $208,000. Put simply, Herman has been required to work a mere 10 hours a week for the past seventeen (17) years.


Had he retired in 1999 when he was eligible, he would have received a lifetime annual pension of $136,700,000. However, by refusing to retire, Herman was entitled to all future pay increases, which subsequently added $71,300.00 to his annual wage and subsequent retirement.


I don’t know about you, but I would not be inclined to allow my legal matter to be decided by someone that is that is a part timer and 92-years-old. And that’s not to mean that I have anything against senior citizens. However, for Congress to allow this to happen is farcical at best.


It should also be noted that Herman receives a Ohio judicial pension in the amount of approximately $98,000. In 2004, the annual pension was $62,153. This only further proves that he’s a Greedy Geezer (GG).


And lastly, maybe this explains why they keep defibrillators, jumper cables and oxygen tanks near Herman’s courtroom.


As we speak (ca. May 2019), Herman continues to be employed as a part-time senior status judge for the District Court in Columbus, Ohio.
