Sri Srinivasan : To Become The 1st Indian American Judge Of US Supreme Court



Sri Srinivasan to become the first Indian-American Judge of the U S Supreme Court to replace Justice Antonin Scalia after his unexpected death. 

Srinivasan is born in Chandigarh and 48 years old. He originally from a village near Tamil Nadu’s Tirunelveli. His family migrated to the US in the 1960s and settled in Lawrence, Texas. He made history in 2013 when he became the first Asian American and Indian American to serve in the Court of Appeals in the D.C. Circuit, long cited as the stepping stone to the uppermost echelon, the Supreme Court. He mostly defended views other than his own, arguing for both Republicans and Democrats. 


In 2010, he defended Enron executive Jeffrey Skilling who was later found guilty of financial fraud. His most famous victory has been his 2013 argument for same-sex marriage under the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) while he was the Obama Administration’s principal deputy solicitor. It is a President’s constitutional right to choose whom he deems fit but the process needs Senate approval, which is currently controlled by the Republicans.

He also has experience on the other side of the aisle, serving as an assistant to the solicitor general during the George W Bush administration and as a clerk to Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. He was once a partner in the law firm O’Melvent & Myers.

President : Barack Obama
Capital and Currency Of the Country : Washington, D.C. and United States Dollar
