WASHINGTON, D.C. – At the recommendation of North Carolina Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, President Trump announced his intention to nominate Thomas Farr to fill the United States District Court vacancy for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
Mr. Farr has extensive experience and is extremely qualified. He has tried cases in federal and state courts in North Carolina and has handled appeals at all levels of the North Carolina appellate courts, the Fourth and Sixth Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the Supreme Court.
In 2006, Mr. Farr was nominated by President George W. Bush to fill the very same vacancy on the U.S. District Court, and the American Bar Association rated him as unanimously well-qualified.
Mr. Farr received his B.L.S from Hillsdale College, received his J.D. from Emory University and holds an L.L.M. in Labor Law from Georgetown University.
