Jackson -

President Barack Obama on Thursday nominated Jackson attorney Debra M. Brown to be a U.S. District judge for northern Mississippi.
    
If confirmed, Brown would be the first African-American woman to serve as a federal district judge in the state. That's according to a spokesman for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran.
    
Cochran and fellow Republican Sen. Roger Wicker both issued statements congratulating the nominee.
    
Brown is a shareholder in a Jackson law firm, Wise Carter Child & Caraway. The firm's website says her main areas of practice have been in commercial, construction and general liability litigation.
    
Brown graduated with a bachelor's degree in architecture from Mississippi State University in 1987 and a law degree from the University of Mississippi in 1997.
