S.F. attorney moves toward confirmation for federal judgeship

Posted By Administration, Friday, November 21, 2014

President Obama’s nomination of San Francisco attorney Haywood Gilliam to a federal judgeship won unanimous approval Thursday from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Gilliam, a graduate of Yale University and Stanford Law School, was a federal prosecutor in San Francisco from 1999 to 2006, the last two years as chief of its securities fraud section.

He now practices business law and has been a partner since 2009 at Covington & Burling in San Francisco, where he is vice chairman of the firm’s white-collar defense and investigations group. He received a civil rights award from the NAACP’s San Francisco office in 1998, when he was with another law firm.
