Blue Bell, PA - President Barack Obama recently nominated 2009 MBA President Mark A. Kearney to become a judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of PA, the first federal trial court in the United States.  Kearney's nomination came upon the joint recommendation of PA Senators Robert P.
