BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Three decades ago the American Bar Association openly opposed his federal appointment.
Now the organization is preparing to honor retired Judge U.W. Clemon.
The ABA will present the 2013 John H. Pickering Award to Clemon next month at their annual meeting in San Francisco.
Clemon says he’s grateful for the honor.
