In 1972, he became legal officer for the United States Supreme Court and, one year later, became special assistant to the Chief Justice. In 1977, Ripple entered private practice, where he spent eight years before joining the law faculty at the University of Notre Dame.

Ripple was nominated by Ronald Reagan on April 1, 1985, to a new seat on the Seventh Circuit. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on May 3, 1985.

A member of the Virginia, New York, Indiana and District of Columbia Bars, Ripple has the distinction of serving on the American delegation to the 1980 Anglo-American Judicial Exchange. He is also a member of the American Law Institute and has chaired the Advisory Committee on Federal Appellate Rules of Procedure.
