John Richard Smoak, Jr. is a U.S. District Judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida. He was born in Columbus, Georgia in 1943.

As of April 2008, Judge Smoak mainly hears cases in the Federal District Court in downtown Panama City, Florida. In 2008 Smoak ruled students of public school have the right to wear gay pride T-shirts and pins. This ruling came after a Florida principal suspended many students for wear such items.
