Thomas Beall Griffith is a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. A 1985 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, Griffith left private practice in 1995 to serve as Senate Legal Counsel, the chief legal officer of the United States Senate, where he gave legal advice to both parties during President Clinton's impeachment trial. In 2000, Griffith became Assistant to the President and General Counsel of Brigham Young University , his undergraduate alma mater.

President George W. Bush first nominated Griffith to the D.C. Circuit on May 10, 2004 to fill a seat vacated by retired Judge Patricia M. Wald. His nomination replaced that of Miguel Estrada, who withdrew his nomination after Democrats filibustered him for over two years. The Senate failed to act on Griffith's nomination, however, and Bush resubmitted the nomination on February 14, 2005. On June 14, 2005, the Senate confirmed Griffith by a vote of 73-24. He received his commission on June 29, 2005.
