Judge Pamela Reeves took the oath of office this week in Knoxville, becoming the first female Chief Judge in the 222-year history of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Reeves was also the first female president of the Tennessee Bar Association. "I like to see myself or think of myself as just being someone who is fair and works hard,” Reeves said in an interview with Knox News. “I mean, really is there anything more that a judge can aspire to be?”
