Federal judicial service

On June 27, 1995, President Bill Clinton nominated Campbell to be a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee to replace Judge Thomas A. Wiseman Jr., who had taken senior status. The United States Senate confirmed Campbell in a voice vote on December 22, 1995, and he received his commission on December 26, 1995.[1] Campbell served as the Middle District's chief judge from 2005 to 2012.[1] being succeeded by William Joseph Haynes Jr.. He took senior status on December 1, 2016, due to a certified disability.[2] He has been inactive since he took senior status, meaning that while he remains a federal judge, he no longer hears cases or participates in the business of the court.
