Fuller nominated for federal

judge

From staff reports

Mark E. Fuller, district attorney for Pike and Coffee counties, has been nominated to become a federal district judge.

Fuller, who has served as district attorney for Alabama’s 12th Judicial Circuit since 1997, was nominated Thursday by President George Bush to be a district judge for the Middle District of Alabama.

The nomination must be confirmed by the Senate.

Fuller, 43, is a native of Enterprise and earned his bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Alabama. He worked for the law firm of Cassady, Fuller & Marsh in Enterprise from 1986 to 1996, before becoming chief assistant district attorney for the 12th circuit.

As District Attorney in Pike County, Fuller and his staff

have served as the lead prosecutors in several investigations and cases with both the Pike County Sheriff’s Department and the Troy Police Department.

"I’ve enjoyed working with him as the District Attorney and I’m sure if he is confirmed he will do a great job," said Troy Police Chief Anthony Everage. "I’ve always known Mark to be an honest and straightforward person."

Fuller could not be reached for comment on Saturday.
