US Senate confirms Alabama deputy AG as federal judge
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — An Alabama deputy attorney general has been confirmed to a lifetime appointment as a federal judge for the state’s northern district.
News outlets report that the U.S. Senate confirmed 41-year-old Corey Maze on Wednesday, more than a year after he was nominated by President Donald Trump.
Maze served as Alabama assistant attorney general starting in 2003. From 2008 until 2011, he was the state’s solicitor general. Maze has been deputy attorney general since 2011.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall says Maze was the primary counsel for the state’s opioid litigation and the 2010 BP oil spill case.
Maze graduated from Auburn University and earned his law degree at Georgetown University Law Center.
