Federal Judges in 2005: Conservative View

Boyden Gray is the chairman and founder of the group Committee for Justice, which was formed to promote conservative judicial nominees. He supports many of President Bush's choices for federal judgeships.

Gray worked for Vice President George H. W. Bush, and was counsel to the first President Bush, from 1989 to 1993. Gray was instrumental in getting Clarence Thomas appointed to the Supreme Court.
