License?? We Don't Need no Steenking License!!

Thomas B. Griffith, President Bush's nominee for the federal appeals court in Washington, has been practicing law in Utah without a state law license for the past four years, according to Utah state officials.

Griffith, the general counsel for Brigham Young University since August 2000, had previously failed to renew his law license in Washington for three years while he was a lawyer based in the District.

Griffith, 55, is a member of the Republican National Lawyers Association and was the lead counsel for the Senate during the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton.

Judicial Nominee Practiced Law Without License in Utah


So, this guy was practicing without a license WHILE he was "lead counsel for the Senate during the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton." He accepted a position as General Counsel for Brigham Young University, which presumably requires a license to practice law, when he had no such license?? Did he misrepresent his qualifications??

Is he ethically and professionally qualified to sit on a Federal Appeals Court??

Nothing to see here, move along.
