Senators introduce Graves to Judiciary Committee
WASHINGTON — Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) yesterday introduced Justice James Graves of Mississippi to the Senate Judiciary Committee and recommended his confirmation to a federal judicial position.
Graves, who currently serves as a presiding justice on the Mississippi Supreme Court, has been nominated by the President to serve as a Circuit Court Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
The committee held the hearing to receive testimony from Graves before determining whether to recommend Graves’ confirmation to the full Senate.
A native of Clinton, Graves was a Circuit Court judge in Hinds County before being appointed to the Mississippi Supreme Court in 2001. He received a bachelor of arts degree in sociology from Millsaps College, a law degree from the Syracuse University College of Law and a master of public administration degree from Syracuse University.
