Making the Tough Calls: A Federal Judge’s Views and His Controversial Cases

A US District Judge on the US District Court for DC, James “Jeb” Boasberg has ruled on a range of high-profile matters, including recovery of Hillary Clinton’s emails, release of the photos of Osama bin Laden’s death, and the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline contested by Native American tribes. He also serves on the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the secret court that authorizes US spying operations. Boasberg will discuss some of the cases that have come before him including the controversial ones in which his decisions end up in the morning headlines.

Prior to his appointment to the federal bench by President Obama in 2011, Boasberg was an Associate Judge of the DC Superior Court, where he served in the Civil and Criminal Divisions and the Domestic Violence Branch. He also worked in the US Attorney’s Office for DC. He is a graduate of Yale College, Oxford University, and Yale Law School.
