Roy McLeese to DC Court of Appeals

The Senate has unanimously confirmed Roy McLeese to the DC Court of Appeals.  Todd Ruger has this post at BLT.

A former law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia, McLeese was an assistant to the solicitor general from 1997 to 1999, arguing four cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. More recently, he temporarily served as the acting deputy solicitor general, filling in for Michael Dreeben while Dreeben taught at Duke Law School.
We at CJLF had the pleasure of working with Roy during his ASG stint, and we congratulate him on his confirmation.

Note:  The name of the court has been corrected since the original post.  Thanks to commenter "dccircuitreview" for pointing this out.


Congratulations to Mr. McLeese on his confirmation to the D.C. Court of Appeals. The D.C. Court of Appeals is the District of Columbia's version of a state supreme court. It is different from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Roy is a man with the kind of class and integrity one seldom sees. Justice in the District of Columbia just took a step up.
