Nahmias to sit on federal rules committee
5:36 pm, December 6th, 2012
Back in the 1990s, John G. Roberts Jr. convinced David Nahmias to join him at his Washington law firm, Hogan & Hartson (now called Hogan Lovells). Now that Roberts is chief justice of the United States, and Nahmias is a Georgia Supreme Court justice, Roberts has tapped Nahmias for another gig.
The state high court announced this week that, at Roberts’ behest, Nahmias will serve a three-year term on the U.S. Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Civil Rules. The committee, which recommends amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, includes federal judges, prominent lawyers and law professors, a U.S. Justice Department representative, and one state supreme court justice.
