Supreme Court Justice Tommy Bryan announced Thursday that he will seek re-election to the Alabama Supreme Court. Justice Bryan has served on the Alabama Supreme Court since 2013 and “has stood firm in his mission of protecting Alabama’s conservative values,” his campaign stated.

“As an Alabama Supreme Court Justice, I treat our citizens fairly, interpret our laws justly, and I seek God’s wisdom and strength to serve with integrity,” stated Justice Bryan. “I want to continue to bring leadership and judgment that the people of Alabama can trust. Our great state deserves a judicial system that is fair and balanced, and that is my priority as an Alabama Supreme Court Justice.”

Justice Bryan has been endorsed by the Alabama Trucking Association and Manufacture Alabama. Additionally, Alabama Farmers Federation’s political action committee, Alabama FarmPAC, has endorsed several judicial incumbents including Justice Bryan for his re-election campaign.

In a statement last month, Federation President Jimmy Parnell said, “Each of these candidates has demonstrated a respect for the law, strong work ethic and appreciation for the voters they serve. With activist judges and runaway verdicts becoming commonplace in our country, it’s important we continue to elect justices and judges who will apply the law, not write new laws.”

Justice Bryan was raised in Crenshaw County, where he grew up on his family’s farm. Justice Bryan credits his parents for instilling in him a belief of faith and love for family values. He graduated from Brantley High School in 1974, went on to obtain his Bachelor and Master of Science Degrees from Troy University, and afterward received a Juris Doctorate from the Jones School of Law. Justice Bryan became an assistant attorney general for Alabama in 1987, serving in the environmental department where he interpreted and defended complex environmental regulations and standards. In 2004, Justice Bryan was victorious in his campaign for the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and defended his seat in 2010.

In the year 2012, Justice Bryan was elected to the Alabama Supreme Court and was also named “Judge of the Year” by the Family Law Section of the Alabama Bar Association. Justice Bryan’s re-election in 2018 was unopposed in both the primary and general elections.

Justice Bryan “is honored to have been recognized for his work in maintaining quality legal standards for Alabama families. Justice Bryan is thrilled to have his wife Pamela and his two children, daughter Thomason and son Tucker, support him throughout his career, as well as the support of Montgomery’s First Baptist Church, where he has served as a deacon, participated in sanctuary choir, and leads an adult Sunday school class. Justice Bryan is looking forward to continuing his service on the Court and helping Alabama’s justice system to be based on the protection of our law, faith and families,” stated the campaign.
