Judicial career

Second Circuit

Mack was transferred to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on July 1, 1929. He stayed with the Second Circuit from 1929-1943, assuming senior status on the court on September 6, 1940. His service ended with his death on September 5, 1943.[1]

Sixth Circuit

Mack was transfered to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit on July 1, 1929 and served on that court until he was transferred to the Second Circuit on June 30, 1930.[1]

Seventh Circuit and Commerce Court

Mack was appointed the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and the United States Commerce Court on a concurrent appointment on December 12, 1910 by William H. Taft to a new seat created by statute 36 Stat. 539. The statute permitted Taft to appoint up to 5 judges to the Commerce Court who would serve concurrent posts on Appellate courts with overburdened jurisdictions. Posts on the Commerce Court were designed to last 5 years when sitting appellate judges would be transferred to the court to cover vacancies. However, the court was terminated just two years later on December 31, 1911. The judges appointed to the court retained their temporary posts on the Appellate courts to which they were assigned. Mack remained on the Seventh Circuit until he was transferred to the Sixth Circuit in 1929.[1]
