Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn renamed the Laredo Federal Building and United States Courthouse the “George P. Kazen Federal Building and United States Courthouse”.

Judge Kazen has been a part of the Laredo community for decades.

After finishing his service in the United States Air Force, Judge Kazen returned to his hometown of Laredo to practice law. After earning a nomination from President Jimmy Carter in 1979, he has spent decades as a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Texas.

“Judge Kazen has dedicated his life to serving the great State of Texas and the United States,” Sen. Cruz said. “Naming the Laredo courthouse after him will serve as a lasting testament to his legacy.”
