WASHINGTON, DC — The National Bar Association applauds the confirmation of the Honorable Judge Richard Boulware as a Federal District Court Judge for the United States District Court, District of Nevada.

Judge Boulware is a Past President of the LVNBA, the First Vice President of the Las Vegas Chapter of the NAACP, and the Chairman of the Nevada Commission on Minority Affairs (appointed by Governor Brian Sandoval (R-NV)).
