The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York's Special Session of Court commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
The purpose of the session is to "honor those in the federal courthouse community who kept the wheels of justice turning after September 11," according to a press statement. Some of the honorees include the U.S. Attorney’s Office, New York Federal Defenders, courthouse employees and the United States Marshals Service.
The afternoon event will be held at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse, located at 500 Pearl Street.
The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York is the oldest federal district court organized under the Federal Judiciary Act of 1789—predating the Supreme Court by several weeks.
