On Sept. 28, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate nine individuals to federal judgeships, including James C. Ho of Texas.
If confirmed, Ho will serve as a Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He is currently a partner in the Dallas office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.
Before joining the firm, Ho served as Solicitor General of Texas in the Office of the Attorney General of Texas, and as a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Ho earned a B.A. in Public Policy from Stanford University and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.
