► U.S. Judge Mark Norris Sr. of Jackson, TN; bigoted loser


The state of Tennessee provided Mark Saalfield Norris Sr. with a law license in 1980 after he graduated from the University of Denver School of Law.


FYI: Why in the hell was Mark nominated for a lifetime federal judgeship when he was sixty-three (63) years old? Who begins a new career as a jurist at age 63 with no prior experience of any kind in dispensing justice? Apparently, Mark was nominated because it was well known by his supporters that he would be more than willing to “dispense with justice” as opposed to “dispensing justice.”


President Donald “Trumporleone” Trump was instructed to nominate Mark for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee even though he had no prior judicial experience and wasn’t the most qualified attorney/jurist in the greater Jackson area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


While practicing his brand of law, Mark led an effort to ban communities from removing monuments to Confederate leaders and set up a website that used images of refugees next to pictures of Islamic State terrorists. The former Tennessee state senator also backed legislation allowing mental health counselors to discriminate against LGBTQ clients and said he does not “favor abortion under any circumstances.” (Jennifer Bendery)


Despite his bigoted loony positions, every Senate Republican present voted to confirm him. Since Mark is 64-years old (DOB: 1955) he could well be on the bench as an unqualified and bigoted lunatic for twenty-five or more years.


And lastly, it should be noted that Mark’s nomination came about due to Judge J. Daniel Breen assuming “senior status” in January 2018. Senior status means that Alice is only required to work 10-hours-a-week while continuing to collect a full salary of $210,900.00.  


Also, it should be noted that Breen was appointed by George W. Bush in 2003 at 53-years of age. Therefore, he waited to take on senior status in January 2018 in order that his replacement would be appointed by another Republican president, meaning he was and has always been a reliable Republican lackey.


As we speak (ca. September 2019), Mark the Bigot continues to sit as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee in Jackson.
