President Barack Obama has nominated Waller partner Waverly Crenshaw to replace retiring District Court Judge William Joseph Haynes Jr. on the federal bench in Nashville, the Nashville Post reports. After graduating from Vanderbilt University Law School in 1981, Crenshaw worked as an assistant attorney general. He became Waller's first African-American attorney and partner in 1990. Crenshaw focuses his practice on employment law and, according to the firm, has grown that practice from two to more than 15 attorneys. His was one of four judicial appointments announced by the Obama administration yesterday.
