WASHINGTON — The Senate Judiciary on Thursday gave the nod to private attorney Jerry E. Martin for the U.S. Attorney post in Nashville, clearing the way for the full Senate to vote on the matter.

Martin will replace U.S. Attorney Edward Yarbrough, who was appointed by President Bush in 2007.

Active in the Democratic politics, Martin has been working for the law firm of Barrett, Johnson & Parsely in Nashville, focusing on complex litigation, including class and collective actions.
