Attorney General Steve Marshall Applauds President Donald Trump’s Nomination of Judge Andrew Brasher to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall praised President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Andrew Brasher to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Judge Brasher, former Solicitor General for the State of Alabama, currently serves as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama.
“Judge Andrew Brasher is eminently qualified and possesses the judicial temperament to make him a fine choice to serve as a federal appeals judge,” said Attorney General Marshall. “Judge Brasher distinguished himself as a legal scholar during his lengthy tenure as Solicitor General of the State of Alabama, arguing and winning cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, and the Alabama Supreme Court.
“I applaud President Trump for his nomination of Judge Andrew Brasher to a seat on the federal appeals court and I give his nomination my full support,” concluded Attorney General Marshall.
Before serving seven years as Solicitor General of Alabama, Judge Brasher worked in private practice. Judge Brasher earned his B.A., with honors and summa cum laude, from Samford University, and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School, where he was a member of the Harvard Law Review and winner of the Victor Brudney Prize. Upon graduation from law school, Judge Brasher served as a law clerk to Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
