American district attorney and jurist who assumed office as a Senior United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on 11 December 2003.
In 2008, Buckwalter was assigned to preside over the corruption trial of Pennsylvania state Sen. Vincent J. Fumo who was ultimately convicted on fraud and obstruction of justice charges. In July 2009, Buckwalter sentenced Fumo to 55 months in prison sparking criticism from the prosecutors and some media outlets, most notably the Philadelphia Inquirer, that the sentence was too lenient.
