Arkansas Sens. Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor, both Democrats, have recommended that the White House tap a Bill Clinton administration U.S. Attorney for a judgeship in the Western District of Arkansas, the Associated Press reported today.
P.K. Holmes served as U.S. Attorney for the Western District from 1993 to 2001. He would fill the seat left vacant by U.S. District Judge Robert T. Dawson, who obtained senior status, according to The AP.
The former U.S. Attorney is a partner at Arkansas law firm Warner, Smith & Harris. He specializes in white-collar crime and commercial litigation.
