Andrew Powell, Judge Waites’ career law clerk in Columbia, will be leaving the Court on June 4, 2021 to serve as the staff attorney for new chapter 13 trustee, Annemarie Mathews. Since 2015, Andrew has been an outstanding law clerk, friend, and advisor to the Judge. He has managed chambers with professionalism, skillfulness, and civility, which has been appreciated by his colleagues at the Court and the Bar. He will be missed and we wish him the best as he embarks on the next step in his career.
Agnes Babb, judicial assistant for Judge Waites for the last two years, will leave the Court on June 2, 2021 to resume her retirement. Agnes started with the Court in 1987, retired from the Court in 2019 but returned to help Judge Waites by special allowance from the Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Throughout her career, Agnes has shown skill, courtesy, and a kind and helpful attitude to all. Her friendship and positive spirit will be missed. We wish her many happy years in retirement.
