'Nightline' Co-Anchor Terry Moran's Biography

Prior to covering politics and policy, Mr. Moran spent ten years covering law. From 1998-1999, he was the primary ABC News correspondent assigned to the U.S. Supreme Court. He filed stories on several major cases, including Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education, a case that raised the issue of schools' liability for student-on-student sexual harassment. Other legal stories he has covered for ABC News include the murder trial of British au pair Louise Woodward in Cambridge, Mass.; the fourth trial of Dr. Jack Kevorkian; the trial of the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski; the Microsoft anti-trust case; and the Portland, Oregon, trial of anti-abortion activists sued for contributing to a website that the jury found illegally threatened abortion providers.

Prior to joining ABC News in 1997, Mr. Moran was a correspondent and anchor for Court TV. He received critical acclaim for his nightly coverage of the day's events in the murder trial of O.J. Simpson and for his extensive reports during the trial of Erik and Lyle Menendez, when the Los Angeles brothers first faced charges for the shotgun murders of their parents. He also traveled to Bosnia and The Hague to cover the first international war-crimes trial since World War II—that of a Bosnian Serb named Dusko Tadic. In addition, he was Court TV's correspondent for the Supreme Court confirmation debates over Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer. Before joining Court TV he was a reporter and assistant managing editor for Legal Times.

Mr. Moran has written for several publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and The New Republic Magazine—where he began his career in journalism.
