Survey for Judge Brendan L. Shannon

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

The survey period has now ended.  Thank your for your particiaption.

            Judge Brendan L. Shannon of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware has asked the Federal Judicial Center (FJC) to survey members of the Bar to assess the Judge’s level of performance. The survey is part of the Judge’s on-going commitment to provide the highest level of public service possible. The FJC is the research and education organization for the federal courts and is located in Washington, D.C.

            During the week of May 13, 2013 the FJC will send an email each attorney who has practiced before Judge Shannon. The email will explain how to access and complete an online questionnaire.

            Research staff at the FJC will compile and analyze completed questionnaires, and will provide Judge Shannon a report, including a statistical summary and a compilation of the comments that are received. FJC staff will not provide the Judge with the identity of the people who responded, if they become aware of that information. The results are exclusively for Judge Shannon's use in improving his performance; the FJC will not provide the results to anyone other than the Judge and the results will not be used in the reappointment process.

            If you do not receive an email from the FJC and want to participate, please contact Ms. Beth Wiggins of the FJC by phone at 410-308-3751 or 202-502-4076 or by email at

            If you have questions about the survey or encounter any technical difficulties, please also contact Ms. Wiggins. If you would prefer to complete a paper version of the questionnaire, she can provide you with a copy and instructions for returning it to the FJC.
