Reeves Awaiting Word on Judgeship

Knoxville lawyer and former TBA President Pamela Reeves is awaiting the U.S. Judiciary Committee’s next move after it postponed a meeting on Thursday. Reeves, who was nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed Thomas W. Phillips, appeared in Washington on Sept. 26 before the committee as part of the confirmation process. The committee was to decide whether to send her nomination on to the full Senate for consideration. No reason was given for the postponement. Knoxnews has more.
