Timothy Brooks gets Senate committee approval for judgeship

Posted By on Thu, Oct 31, 2013 at 9:56 AM

Carl Tobias at the University of Richmond, a law professor who monitors the judicial selection process closely, sends word that Timothy Brooks of Fayetteville was approved by a voice vote today by the Senate Judiciary Committee for a federal judgeship in the western district of Arkansas. A couple of nominees were opposed by Republican members in roll call votes. His confirmation by the Senate is expected to be non-controversial, though the Senate could be gummed up by unrelated issues.
