About the Office

      The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania was created by an Act of Congress dated March 2, 1901, which a new federal judicial district comprised of counties formerly in the eastern and western judicial districts of the Commonwealth, and also created the United States District Court, the offices of the Unites States Marshal, the Marshal's deputies, the Court Clerk and assistant clerks. The Act provided that the first session of the Court of the Middle District was to be held in Harrisburg on the first Monday of May (May 6, 1901).
