S. Thomas Anderson was confirmed by the U.S. Senate Thursday as the newest U.S. District Court Judge for West Tennessee. Anderson, who replaces U.S. District Court Judge James D. Todd of Jackson, Tenn., was confirmed on a unanimous voice vote in Washington. He was nominated by President George W. Bush in 2007 and has been serving as a U.S. Magistrate Judge since 2003 primarily in Jackson but with a courtroom in the Federal Building in Memphis as well.

Bush’s nomination of Anderson came after the endorsement by Tennessee’s two Republican senators.

“Tom Anderson is well-respected and possesses the knowledge and experience necessary to ably serve Tennesseans in the Western District,” said Sen. Bob Corker.

Sen. Lamar Alexander noted Anderson’s support from Democrats in the state’s Congressional delegation.

“There is a deep reservoir of goodwill for Judge Anderson in the state, and it reflects the fact that he is experienced, fair-minded and respected,” Alexander said.
