Gordon Dwyer Todd is a Law Clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr.[1]

Todd's wife[2], Kate Comerford Todd, formerly a partner at the D.C.-based law firm of Wiley Rein & Fielding, is an Associate Counsel to the President in the Office of Counsel.


In September 2005, after having served in the U.S. Department of Justice "as counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights for two years, [Todd] joined the Office of Legal Policy as special counsel for Supreme Court nominations. During his tenure in that office, Todd worked on the completion of now-Chief Justice John Roberts's nomination, the eventually terminated nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers, and finally, on the successful nomination of Alito himself."[3]

Todd graduated cum laude from Princeton and, in 2000, received his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law.[4]
