President Barack Obama today nominated a U.S. Department of Homeland Security attorney and a Baltimore city prosecutor for two federal judgeships in the U.S. District Court of Maryland.
Theodore Chuang, deputy general counsel at Homeland Security since 2009, previously worked as investigative counsel in the House committees on Energy and Commerce and Oversight and Government Reform. He also worked at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr from 2004 to 2007.
George Hazel, chief deputy state's attorney for Baltimore City since 2011, previously worked as an assistant U.S. attorney in Maryland from 2008 to 2010 and in the District of Columbia from 2005 to 2008. He also worked at Weil, Gotshal & Manges in Washington from 1999 to 2004.
Chuang and Hazel were selected to replace U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams Jr., who took senior status in May, and U.S. District Judge Roger Titus, who has announced he will take senior status in January.
