Utah Supreme Court Lee

Kimberly Lee helps her husband, the new Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas R. Lee with his robe after being confirmed and sworn in by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas at the Matheson Courthouse, Supreme Court chamber in Salt Lake City on Monday, July 19, 2010. 

The associate justice of the Utah Supreme Court was appointed by Republican Gov. Gary Herbert in 2010. He is the brother of U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, a staunch ally of former GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. He's also the son of Rex Lee, a former U.S. solicitor general in President Ronald Reagan's administration.

Lee never served as a judge before Herbert picked him for Utah's high court. He worked in private practice, and was a deputy assistant attorney general under Bush and clerked for Thomas. He earned his law degree at the University of Chicago.
