H. Carl Moultrie I was appointed an Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia in 1972. Six years later, on June 22, 1978, he was appointed the court's first African American Chief Judge. He held that position until his death on April 9, 1986.
Chief Judge Moultrie developed a reputation as a hard, but fair judge who was seldom reversed. He received innumerable honors and awards from community organizations. In recognition of the unique leadership of Chief Judge H. Carl Moultrie, the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration in the District of Columbia named in his honor the courthouse that is located at 500 Indiana Avenue, N.W.
