Noted civil rights attorney John Payton ’73, who served as lead counsel for the University of Michigan in two landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases concerning diversity in higher education, was elected to the Pomona College Board of Trustees in September.

A partner with the firm Wilmer, Cutler and Pickering in Washington, D.C., Payton has held leadership roles in the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Free South Africa Movement. He is past president of the District of Columbia Bar Association.

As a Pomona student, Payton was a founder of the Black Student Union and co-founder of the Black Studies Center. He earned his law degree, cum laude, from Harvard Law School. He is married to Gay McDougall, who is the executive director of Global Rights: Partners for Justice, formerly the International Human Rights Law Group.
