Rep. Franklin Foil Selected as Navy Judge
BATON ROUGE—State Rep. Franklin Foil has been selected by The Deputy Judge Advocate General of the Navy to be a military trial judge. Foil was selected to participate in a Military Judge Course in Charlottesville, VA and was subsequently slated for one of the three trial judge positions in the Navy-Marine Corps Trial Judiciary. Foil, who is a Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserves, has served 22 years in the Navy. As a military judge, he will preside over general courts-martial cases and will have world-wide jurisdiction.
"Joining the U.S. Navy has been the best professional decision I ever made and being appointed as a judge is a career highlight for me,” said Foil.
As a Navy Captain, Foil most recently served as the Commanding Officer of the Naval Reserve Legal Office in Washington DC, providing legal services to Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard service members and their dependents to support fleet readiness. In the Louisiana House of Representatives, Foil also serves as Vice-Chair of the House Judiciary Committee.
