U.S. District Court Judge Todd J. Campbell announced today that he would retire from the bench effective Dec. 1. Campbell, who has served the Middle District of Tennessee for more than 20 years, including seven as chief judge, led the court through a number of significant accomplishments including implementation of an electronic filing and online jury reporting system, securing the new federal courthouse, revising local rules to conform with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, creating an accessible courtroom for individuals with disabilities, supporting law school scholarships for disadvantaged students, and providing free educational programs for attorneys around major cases decided by the court. In a statement released today, Chief Judge Kevin H. Sharp said, “Words cannot capture all that Judge Campbell has meant to his colleagues, this district and the Sixth Circuit … his sage advice and counsel to his fellow judges will be sorely missed.” The Tennessean has more on the news.
