Legal Times: LBJ's Granddaughter, Catherine Robb of Haynes and Boone, Sworn in to US Supreme Court Bar

October 16, 2015

It was a throwback moment at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday when Catherine Robb, the granddaughter of the late president Lyndon Johnson, was admitted to the court's bar.

Her father Charles Robb, the former governor and U.S. senator from Virginia, moved her admission. It appeared that several justices recognized the presidential connection as she was sworn in to the bar.

"It's something my father and I talked about years ago," Catherine Robb said afterward. "It was an opportunity for my father to move my admission—a special bond between us."

Catherine Robb, 45, is counsel to Haynes and Boone in Austin, where she represents media-industry clients. She said she also sought admission because she may be writing amicus briefs in upcoming Supreme Court cases. "I thought it might come in handy."
