We know him as Tommy Parker. But from now on, he will be Judge Parker, a U.S. district Court judge for Tenneessee’s Western District. That includes Memphis and surrounding counties.
Parker was nominated to the position by President Trump in July and the Senate confirmed him Wednesday 98-0.
That’s good news for Republicans. Judge Parker has been active in the Shelby GOP. He very kindly has transported me and others on several occasions to the Shelby GOP election caucuses. His opinions were always spot on and insightful. Parker would always buy tickets to the Lincoln Day dinner which he shared with others. At another time, he graciously shared his opinion on a legal matter I asked him about without any hesitation.
The Central Gardens resident is the father of three girls. He’s been a top notch attorney at the prestigious Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz.
Kudos to President Trump for picking him. He should be a very good judge for Tennesseans.
