Bad Grade For Griffith


Thomas Griffith, who President Bush nominated to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, barely eked out a “qualified” rating from the Americna Bar Association. Of the fifteen evaluators, at least six rated him “not qualified.” One of the key issues is that Griffith allowed his law license to lapse while he continued to practice law in D.C. and Utah. Griffith is currently general counsel for Brigham Young University and is close to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, who plans to hold a hearing soon on Griffith’s nomination.
