Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. announced Thursday that he has chosen James Duff, managing partner of the Washington, D.C., office of Baker Donelson, to run the judicial branch as the next director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. During a rare press briefing at the Supreme Court after the announcement, Roberts said Duff's arrival represents "a good chance for a fresh start and a renewed effort" to improve relations and address "tensions and disagreements" between the judiciary and Congress.
