Recent federal judicial appointment

The Senate confirmed James Ho to be a Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. President Trump nominated Ho for the position in September and the Senate confirmed him by a vote of 53-43.

Most recently, Ho was a partner and co-chair of the Appellate and Constitutional Law practice at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. Previously, Ho was Solicitor General of Texas and chief counsel to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas). Ho also has held posts at the DOJ, including as special assistant to the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights and as an attorney-advisor in the Office of Legal Counsel. Moreover, Ho was an adjunct professor at the University of Texas School of Law, where he taught U.S. Supreme Court Litigation.

Ho earned an undergraduate degree from Stanford University and a law degree from the University of Chicago Law School. After graduation, Ho clerked for the Hon. Jerry Edwin Smith of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
