Federal judicial service

On January 16, 2014, President Barack Obama nominated Boulware to serve as a district judge of the United States District Court for the District of Nevada to the seat vacated by Judge Philip Martin Pro, who assumed senior status on December 31, 2011. He received a hearing before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on March 12, 2014. On April 3, 2014, his nomination was reported out of committee by a 11–7 vote.

On June 5, 2014, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed for cloture on the nomination. On June 9, 2014, the United States Senate invoked cloture by a 53–34 vote. On June 10, 2014, his nomination was confirmed by a 58–35 vote. He received his judicial commission the same day. He was sworn in on June 12, 2014.

In 2015, Boulware began hearing a high profile anti-trust lawsuit against the Ultimate Fighting Championship filed by several of its former fighters. The fighters allege that the UFC "unlawfully monopolized the market for mixed martial arts promotion by, among other things, locking up fighters with exclusive contracts and acquiring its rivals, leading to suppressed compensation for the fighters". The UFC is fighting the suit, alleging that it is "meritless." In September of 2020, Boulware indicated he was "likely" to grant class-action status to the suit.

In May 2022, he vacated Margaret Rudin’s murder conviction after she had spent 20 years in prison. Boulware ruled that Rudin received ineffective legal representation from her late defense attorney.
