NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam has appointed Crockett County lawyer Brandon O. Gibson to the western section of the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

In a Thursday news release, Haslam says Gibson will replace Judge David R. Farmer when his term expires Aug. 31.

The 38-year-old Gibson has been in private practice at the Pentecost & Glenn law firm in Jackson since 2003.

Her practice there has focused on governmental entity defense, employment defense, commercial litigation, civil rights litigation and transactional services. Her work for the firm has included its satellite office in Crockett County.

Prior to her work at Pentecost & Glenn, Gibson was at the Waldrop & Hall law firm in Jackson from 2001 to 2003. She was previously at the Potter Minton firm in Tyler, Texas.
