Timothy Brooks was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Wednesday to serve as U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Arkansas.

"The federal bench needs judges that are fair and impartial, and Timothy Brooks is a perfect fit," U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor said in a release.

Pryor said he was disappointed "partisan gridlock" delayed Brooks’ confirmation, but was happy he, U.S. Sen. John Boozman and their colleagues were able to confirm him.

"Timothy Brooks has the experience, background and temperament to unanimously qualify him for the job," Boozman said in the release. "I am confident that he will do an excellent job in this role and make Arkansas proud of his service."

Brooks is a partner with the Taylor Law Partners, LLP in Fayetteville, where he’s spent his entire, 24-year law career. Brooks has been partner since 1993. He is a University of Arkansas graduate, and earned his J.D. with honors from the University of Arkansas School of Law.

Brooks' confirmation comes just more than a week after James "Jay" Maxwell Moody, Jr. was confirmed to serve as U.S. District Judge in Arkansas’ Eastern District.
