Attorney Brown Admitted to the Federal District Court for Eastern Pennsylvania
On October 12, 2018, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania admitted Attorney Shannon Brown. Attorney Brown now maintains admissions to the federal Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Judge Joseph Leeson, Jr. of the Eastern District granted the motion for admission. Attorney Sean P. McDonough in the Scranton-area moved for Attorney Brown’s admission.
The admission was part of the first, federal, joint-admission program for the region. The federal joint-admission program allowed qualified attorneys to move for admission to any of the Eastern District, Middle District, or Third Circuit Courts in one place—otherwise, attorneys may need to travel to each court. A judge from each court came to Scranton and heard petitions for admission and administered oaths. The Lackawanna Bar Association helped coordinate the innovative event.
