U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Friedman will take senior status Nov. 30.
Friedman was a Virginia Beach Circuit Court judge when President Bill Clinton appointed him to the federal bench in 1997.
Friedman told The Virginian-Pilot that he had notified the White House and court officials of his plans but declined further comment.
Under the procedures for filling federal judicial vacancies, Virginia Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner will recommend one or more candidates to President Barack Obama.
Nominations by Obama are subject to Senate confirmation.
