From the Buffalo Law Journal:
A judge from Buffalo has become the first woman to head the union of federal judges that hear Social Security disability cases.
The Hon. Marilyn Zahm was elected president of the Association of Administrative Law Judges. AALJ said that she will serve a three-year term.
Zahm is the first woman to head the AALJ, which represents 1,200 federal judges across the nation involved in Social Security disability cases. ...
Zahm defeated Miami-based AALJ member Thomas Snook in a runoff election, 335-296. She succeeds Judge Randall Frye, an administrative law judge based in Charlotte.
