Abstract:

Judge Myron Herbert Thompson was born on January 7, 1947 in Tuskegee, Alabama. He attended Tuskegee Institute High School, graduating salutatorian in 1965. Thompson received his B.A. degree in political science from Yale University in 1969, his J.D. degree from Yale Law School in 1972. After graduation, Thompson became the first African American Assistant Attorney General for the State of Alabama. He served for two years before going into private practice in Dothan, Alabama. President Jimmy Carter nominated Thompson to the bench of the United States District Court, Middle District of Alabama. He was confirmed by the U.S. Senate and received his appointment in September 1980. At age 33, he was the youngest member on the bench. Thompson served as Chief Justice from 1991 to 1998. He made national headlines when he ordered Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the rotunda of the State’s courthouse.
