Andrew Coyle Bradley (February 12, 1844 – May 15, 1902) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Washington, D.C., Bradley attended Columbian University until serving in the quartermaster general and commissary general offices of the Union Army in Washington, DC during the American Civil War. He resumed his studies after the war, received an LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 1867, was admitted to the bar in Massachusetts, and practiced in Washington, DC. He also served as a professor of law at Columbian University.

On March 19, 1889, Bradley was nominated by President Benjamin Harrison to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia vacated by W.M. Merrick. Bradley was confirmed by the United States Senate on March 23, 1889, received his commission the same day, and served until his death.

Bradley died in Washington, DC on May 15, 1902. He was buried at Rock Creek Cemetery.[1]
