Mississippi Supreme Court Justice James E. Graves, Jr. Nominated To U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit

The White House announced today that President Barack Obama has nominated Mississippi Supreme Court Justice James E. Graves, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.  Justice Graves is a distinguished jurist and his nomination is being celebrated in Mississippi legal circles.  I met Judge Graves when I began practicing law twenty-two years ago.  I worked with him at the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office and I am very proud of his nomination.  When confirmed, I believe he will serve with the utmost distinction.  Here is a link to the White House announcement.
