For other people named Leonard Moore, see Leonard Moore (disambiguation).

Leonard Page Moore (July 2, 1898, Evanston, Illinois - December 7, 1982, Mystic, Connecticut) was a federal appellate judge in the United States.

Born in Evanston, Illinois, Moore was in the U.S. Naval Reserve from 1918 to 1919, and then received a A.B. from Amherst College in 1919 and an LL.B. from Columbia Law School in 1922. He spent three decades, from 1922 to 1953, as a lawyer in private practice in New York City. From 1953 to 1957, Moore was United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

On September 6, 1957, Moore received a recess appointment from President Dwight D. Eisenhower to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit vacated by the death of Jerome New Frank. Formally nominated on January 13, 1958, Moore was confirmed by the United States Senate on February 25, 1958, and received his commission on February 27, 1958. He assumed senior status on March 1, 1971, serving in that capacity until his death, in Mystic, Connecticut.

Michael S. Greco, former president of the American Bar Association, clerked for Moore.
