JUDGE STANLEY S. BROTMAN
When the Honorable Stanley S. Brotman took senior status
in April of 1990, the United States District Court for the District
of New Jersey lost the full time services of one of its most prag-
matic and efficient members. During his fifteen years on the fed-
eral bench, Judge Brotman has earned the reputation of a fair
and honest judge who consistently encourages settlement over
self-serving litigation.
Born in Vineland, New Jersey on July 27, 1924, Judge Brot-
man first answered his country's call to service during the Second
World War. From 1943 to 1945 the Judge served in the
Counter-Intelligence Corps and the Office of Strategic Services
in Burma.
Judge Brotman was educated at Yale University, receiving a
B.A. in 1947. Following his tenure in New Haven, he attended
Harvard Law School from which the Judge obtained an L.L.B. in
1950. While at Harvard, Judge Brotman displayed his advocacy
skills, winning the Ames Moot Court Competition in 1950.
An exemplary citizen, the Judge again entered the military
during the Korean War. He was commissioned as a First Lieu-
tenant in the Armed Forces Security Agency, serving from 1951
to 1952. Judge Brotman continued his military affiliation
through the American Legion and the Jewish War Veterans.
Judge Brotman entered civil practice in 1952, working as a
solo practitioner in Vineland until 1957. Thereafter, he was a
partner at the firm of Shapiro, Brotman, Eisenstat & Capizola un-
til his appointment by President Gerald R. Ford on April 23,
1975 to the United States District Court for the District of New
Jersey.
Dedicated to the profession, Judge Brotman served as the
President of the New Jersey State Bar Association from 1974 un-
til his appointment to the federal bench. His dedication to the
profession was exemplified by his concern for the less fortunate,
as evidenced by his serving as Vice President of Legiscops Inc., a
corporation providing legal services to indigents. Judge Brot-
man was also an active participant in the Cumberland County
and American Bar Associations, and was a member of the Ameri-
can Judicature Society. The Judge was similarly active in the
community. He served as the Director of the Vineland Chapter
