As a member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, I will strive to help uphold the nation’s most essential legal tenet – Equal Justice Under Law.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 10, 2011
Attorney Richard C. Mumey, a longtime Houston firefighter who now advocates for public safety personnel, has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.
On Monday at about 10 a.m., the Supreme Court justices emerged from behind the iconic red curtains in the court chamber and announced the court’s decisions of the day. Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. then granted a motion to admit Mumey and the other new members of the bar. The Clerk of the Court swore them in individually. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Samuel A. Alito Jr. personally congratulated Mumey at a reception in the West Conference Room of the Supreme Court.
Mumey, who is senior partner at The Mumey Law Firm, PLLC, said, “Like many American lawyers, I look forward to practicing in our nation’s highest court. As a lawyer for firefighters who have been affected by recent workplace law rulings of the Supreme Court, I appreciated the opportunity to be sworn in by and meet the Justices. As a member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, I will strive to help uphold the nation’s most essential legal tenet – Equal Justice Under Law.”
