Information about relatively new federal judges

If you want to research the background of a federal judge, either on a district court or on the U.S. Fifth Circuit, check out the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s web site. There, you will find oodles of public information about judicial nominees. Under the Nominations tab, select Judicial Nominations to find information about the status of recent nominees, both pending and confirmed. To find and download publicly available documents about a nominee or judge, click on the Library tab, where you’ll find the nominees’ questionnaires (their CVs for the Judiciary Committee) and answers to written questions. On both pages, you’ll find a handy Search box on the right.

The information available there appears to date back t0 2010. So if the judge you’re researching was appointed more than four or five years ago, you may not find much. But if you want to look up someone nominated or confirmed within the last few years, you’ll may hit a mother lode.
