Robert P. Bomboy


With the year’s final season now firmly installed and my attention focused on the day-to-day action in the congressional committees, I realize I’ve been remiss in not keeping up my scorecard on Donald Trump’s nominations to the federal courts.

There was of course, important Washington action 1,400 miles to the southwest, where the Nationals beat Houston in the World Series; but I have to recognize that there’s been hellzapoppin’ on the court beat.

Robert P. Bomboy has written for more than 60 national magazines and is the author of six books, including the novel “Smart Boys Swimming in the River Styx.” He taught for more than 30 years in colleges and universities, and he has been a Ford Foundation Fellow at the University of Chicago and in Washington, D.C.
