The President today announced his intention to nominate Ronald P. Wertheim to be an Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia for a term of 15 years. Mr. Wertheim will fill the vacancy created by the elevation of James A. Belson to the D.C. Court of Appeals.

Mr. Wertheim is currently a member of the Merit Systems Protection Board. Previously, he was in the private practice of law with the firm of Ginsburg, Feldman and Bress in Washington, D.C.

Wertheim was Adviser to the Secretary of Defense for Law of the Sea Negotiations and Alternate U.S. Representative at the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea from May to October 1977.

He was Deputy General Counsel of the Peace Corps from 1964 to 1966 and Peace Corps Director in northeast Brazil from 1966 to 1968. Mr. Wertheim practiced trial law in Philadelphia from 1957 to 1959 and was assistant public defender in Philadelphia from 1959 to 1961. After that, and until he joined the Peace Corps, he was associate professor of law at the University of Virginia.

In 1962 Mr. Wertheim received a diploma from The Hague Academy of International Law. He was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1957, where he was editor in chief of its Law Review and received prizes for the highest grades in constitutional law and labor law. He also is a 1954 graduate of the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was in the top 5 percent of his class.

Mr. Wertheim, 48, resides in Washington, D.C., with his wife and two children.
