DENVER -- Tom Downey is a Denver attorney. Back in the day, he went to high school with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

Downey popped open his 1983 Georgetown Prep yearbook to show the proof from the school in Bethesda, Md. In one photo, the cast of “The Odd Couple” is seen. Downey and Gorsuch were teen actors in the play.

Gorsuch was nominated earlier this week by President Donald Trump to fill the seat vacated by Antonin Scalia.

Gorsuch’s confirmation process begins in about six weeks.
