Francis Boyer admitted to the United States Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the United States. It has ultimate appellate jurisdiction over all state and federal courts, and original jurisdiction over a small range of cases. The United States Supreme Court meets in Washington, D.C., and consists of a chief justice and eight associate justices who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Once appointed, justices have life tenure unless they are removed after impeachment.
To qualify for admission to the Bar of the Supreme Court, an applicant must have been admitted to practice in the highest court of a State, Commonwealth, Territory or Possession, or the District of Columbia for numerous years immediately before the date of application; must not have been the subject of any adverse disciplinary action pronounced; and must appear to the Court to be of good moral and professional character.
Each applicant must file a certificate from the presiding judge, clerk, or other authorized official of that court evidencing the applicant’s admission to practice there and the applicant’s current good standing, and the statement of two sponsors endorsing the correctness of the applicant’s statement, stating that the applicant possesses all the qualifications required for admission, and affirming that the applicant is of good moral and professional character. Both sponsors must be members of the Bar of this Court who personally know, but are not related to, the applicant.
Mr. Boyer successfully met the requirements of the United States Supreme Court and has been granted admission to the highest United States Court.
