President Barack Obama has nominated U.S. Attorney Edward Stanton III to be a federal judge for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee.

STANTON

The nomination of Stanton, who has been the chief federal prosecutor for West Tennessee for five years, was announced Thursday, May 21, by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis, who recommended Stanton to the White House after convening a screening committee of local attorneys.

Stanton’s appointment is subject to approval by the U.S. Senate.

Stanton is a 1997 graduate of the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. Before his appointment as U.S. Attorney by Obama in 2010, Stanton had worked as an assistant city attorney, at two Memphis law firms and as senior counsel at FedEx Corp.
