Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the passing of longtime federal district-court judge G. Thomas Eisele of the Eastern District of Arkansas:

"I was very sorry to hear of Judge Eisele's passing. He served his country with distinction, both in the Army during World War II and on the bench for 41 years. In that time, he earned a reputation for being a judge's judge: courteous, knowledgeable, patient, wise-and, most importantly, fair. That was no small contribution to our legal system, nor were the many opinions he wrote or the 50 law clerks he mentored. The Arkansas bar will be poorer without his presence, but his influence will be felt for generations to come."
