The U.S. Senate on Tuesday confirmed Alabama judge Andrew Brasher as President Donald Trump’s latest appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

The 52-43 vote comes after the 38-year-old judge spent less than a year on the bench as a federal trial judge in the Middle District of Alabama. Brasher was confirmed to that seat in a 52-47-party line vote last May. Trump nominated him to the appeals court six months later.
