A veteran of the federal bench is newly in the spotlight as he presides over cutting-edge NSA litigation and a high-stakes economic espionage prosecution that has presented novel questions of law. Any lawyer going before U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White should know he's got his own way of doing things, and that you'd do well to know his rules of the road. Defense attorneys fear White's hefty sentences in criminal matters. Liberals cheered him when he found the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional in the first DOMA ruling to apply a heightened level of scrutiny. A series of judicial experiments for case management has cemented his status as a judicial innovator.
White, 67, was appointed in 2002 by President George W. Bush. He previously served as a federal prosecutor in Maryland and at Main Justice before joining Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, where he became head of litigation.
In White's court, jurors are engaged and active participants early on.
