Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan is the new director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

Hogan, a former chief U.S. District Court judge in Washington, will serve a one-year term as the chief administrative officer for the federal court system. He will oversee the federal judiciary's 35,000 employees and its almost $7 billion annual budget.

The Judicial Conference of the United States is the principal policymaking body for the federal court system. As its presiding officer, Chief Justice John Roberts selected Hogan for the position.

Hogan will begin Oct. 17. He plans to resume work as a senior federal judge after his term ends.

The previous director, James Duff, left this summer to become president of the Freedom Forum.
