Brown’s nomination vote for judgeship postponed by Senate

WASHINGTON — A vote on the nomination of Jackson attorney Debra M. Brown to a federal judgeship in north Mississippi has been postponed by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee

Brown’s nomination was one of four before the committee today. Votes on all four were postponed. The committee has not yet scheduled another meeting.

President Barack Obama nominated Brown in May. The judgeship presides over court in Greenville.

If confirmed, Brown would become the state’s first black female district judge.

The post became open in 2012 by the death of U.S. District Judge W. Allen Pepper Jr.

Brown works in the Jackson law firm Wise Carter Child & Caraway.

Brown graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University and a law degree from the University of Mississippi.
