Circuit Court Judge

Endorsed by Three Major Newspapers:

Hillel for colleges, the Anti-
Defamation League and B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization.
But ADL split from B'nai B'rith
years ago; more recently, Hillel has
gone its own way. This summer, the
Jewish college student service pro-
gram moved into a sparkling new
headquarters a few blocks away.
In March 1977, the B'nai B'rith
Building was invaded by the Hanafi
Muslim sect; dozens of employees
were held hostage for 39 hours.
More recently, it was the site of one
of the nation's first bioterrorism scares.
A package in the mailroom oozed a
gelatinous substance; a crude label
identified it as "anthrachs." Dozens of
B'nai B'rith employees went through
decontamination procedures on the
street, some stripped to their under-
wear. The event demonstrated how
badly prepared local authorities were
for bioterrorism.
In fact, the substance proved to be

In recent years, B'nai B'rith rented
space to a number of other Jewish
organizations, including United Jewish
Communities, the Jewish Council for
Public Affairs, the Orthodox Union,
NCSJ and Hebrew Immigrant Aid
In recent weeks, all of those groups
moved to new Washington digs.
B'nai B'rith itself has moved to a
modern office building on K Street —
"Gucci Gulch," home to most of the
nation's high-priced lobbyists.
B'nai B'rith's Klutznik Museum,
which occupied the first floor of the
old building, will be downsized and
eventually reopened, but only on an
appointment basis.
B'nai B'rith Executive Vice President
Dan Mariaschin cast the move in a posi-
tive light. "It's a milestone," he said. "The
new offices are bright and attractive; it's a
21st century location, and gives us a nice
launch into the new century." ❑

Also received the highest recommendation
given to Circuit Court candidates
by the Oakland County Bar Association.



The Detroit News, July 18, 2002

"Our recommendation is Martha Anderson of Troy. Anderson has been a long-
serving referee hearing family matters in the circuit court, and would be a good
choice as a judge in the court's family division."

The Detroit Free Press, July 19, 2002

"Out of 10 candidates, two stand out, one of which is MARTHA ANDERSON of Troy.
Anderson's 22 years as a Circuit Court referee will let her hit the ground running.
She is extremely well respected by the Oakland County legal community. Her
commitment to stay in the Family Court division even after her assignment is up
should be welcomed by the chief judge as well as by the division's clients, who
often must play musical judges during the most stressful moments of their lives."

The Oakland Press, July 25, 2002

"There are two new Circuit Court judgeships which, not surprisingly, have attracted
10 candidates. Of that group, we endorse MARTHA ANDERSON for (one of) the two
new seats."
