James G. Carr (born November 7, 1940) is a federal district judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

Carr was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He received a B.A. from Kenyon College in 1962, and an LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 1969. He was in private practice of law in Chicago, Illinois from 1966 to 1968. He was a Staff attorney of the Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation from 1968 to 1970. He was then an adjunct professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law (Illinois Institute of Technology) in 1969, and at Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 1970. He was an associate professor at the University of Toledo College of Law from 1970 to 1979.

While he was a professor, Carr was also an assistant prosecutor at the Lucas County Prosecutor's Office in Ohio from 1972 to 1973. He later became a U.S. Magistrate for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in 1979, and was nominated by President Bill Clinton on January 27, 1994, to a seat on that court vacated by Richard B. McQuade, Jr. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on May 6, 1994, and received his commission on May 9. Chief Justice William Rehnquist appointed Judge Carr to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on May 19, 2002. Carr was made chief judge in 2004. His term on the FISA Court expired in 2008.
