Sally Yates Nominated As US Attorney

I’m catching up on some items we missed over the holidays. First up, Sally Yates was (finally) nominated to be the US Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.

A longtime assistant U.S. attorney, Yates has been the interim U.S. attorney since August, when her predecessor, David Nahmias, resigned to take a seat on the Georgia Supreme Court.

A 1982 graduate of the University of Georgia and a 1986 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, Yates is perhaps best known for prosecuting former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell in a public corruption case.

Given the previous claims that Yates’ nomination was delayed due to some who may have resented her prosecution of Bill Campbell, I do find the timing of a Christmas Eve press release interesting.
