Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that J. Douglas Minor Jr., a partner in the firm’s Jackson office, has been appointed to the American Bar Association (ABA) Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary (FJC).
The FJC evaluates the professional qualifications of all nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, circuit courts of appeals, district courts (including territorial district courts), and the Court of International Trade.
