Justice Clarence Thomas
Supreme Court of the United States
Clarence Thomas was born on June 23, 1948, in Pin Point, Georgia, eventually going on to attend Yale Law School. He later served in various posts under Senator John C. Danforth and the administrations of President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush. The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall led Bush to nominate Thomas as the judge's replacement and he was confirmed in 1991. Thomas is a conservative justice who favors small government.
