Pam L. Reeves was sworn in Monday as the new judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Chief U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan said Knoxville attorney Pamela Reeves was sworn in outside her new chambers in a private ceremony and expects to immediately begin hearing cases. The Senate voted 99-0 last week to confirm Reeves to the judicial post. She replaces U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Phillips, who retired last July. Reeves was the Tennessee Bar Association's first female president. Knoxnews.com has more.
