MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - President Donald Trump has nominated Alabama Special Deputy Attorney General Corey Maze for a federal judgeship position.
Maze is being tapped to serve as a District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.
The White House announcement for Maze reads:
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall praised the decision calling Maze "a very talented and experienced lawyer who would be an outstanding addition to the Northern District Court bench."
Marshall said Maze "possesses a broad base of legal experience from the prosecution of criminal trials and appeals as an Alabama Assistant Attorney General, to arguing cases before the U.S. Supreme Court as former Alabama Solicitor General, to successfully representing Alabama in the landmark BP oil spill case."
Maze is a graduate of Auburn University and Georgetown University Law Center.
The nomination is one of the multiple nominations announced by the White House Thursday to fill positions across the country.
