Carlton Reeves Nominated for Southern District U.S. District Judge

It took a year and a half, but President Obama finally nominated Jackson attorney Carlton Reeves to be a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Mississippi. The nomination has been expected from the day that Obama won the 2008 presidential election.

Reeves is a Yazoo City native and is a graduate of Jackson State and the University of Virginia School of Law. He clerked on the Mississippi Supreme Court for Judge Rueben Anderson, was the Chief of the Civil Division of the Southern District U.S. Attorney’s Office and has been in private practice with Phelps Dunbar and his current firm of Pigott Reeves Johnson.
