FILE - In this June 23, 2011 file photo, Chief Judge Richard F. Cebull speaks during a naturalization ceremony at the James F. Battin Federal Courthouse in Billings, Mont. The chief federal judge for the state resigned in 2012 after emailing a joke in which a young Obama asks why he is black and his mother is white. The punch line involved a dog. "Although (the joke) is racist, I'm not that way, never have been," Cebull said. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, James Woodcock)
