President Nominates 3 U.S. Attorneys and 3 U.S. Marshals

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday nominated three  U.S. Attorneys and three U.S. Marshals.

The nominees for U.S. Attorney include Charlotte lawyer Thomas Gray Walker for North Carolina’s Eastern District, assistant U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams for the Northern District of Mississippi and S. Amanda Marshall.

So far, according to the Justice Department, 76 U.S. Attorneys have been nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate. Five of the current U.S. Attorneys were nominated by President Bush.

Walker had previously been nominated in 2009, but senators wanted the current U.S. Attorney George Holding, a Bush appointee, to finish up some key investigations including one into campaign contributions involving former Sen. John Edwards.

Felicia Adams is an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of Mississippi and worked as a prosecutor from 1989 to 2000 in the Northern District.  Amanda Marshall, like Walker, had previously been nominated by the president, but the Senate failed to act on the nomination the first time before it recessed in December. She is a child advocacy lawyer for the Oregon Department of Justice, according to the news website  Main Justice.

For U.S. Marshal, the president nominated: Ponca City Police Chief Clayton D. Johnson for the Northern District of Oklahoma; Alfred Cooper Lomax for the Western District of Missouri and Charles F. Salina for the Western District of New York.

Salina has been with the Marshals Service since 1988. Alfred Cooper Lomax spent nearly 30 years with the Kansas City Police Department before becoming Chief of Airport Safety and Security at the Kansas City International Airport.
