Alabama Attorney General
Attorney General Steve Marshall Praises U.S. Senate Confirmation of Corey Maze for
Federal Court Judgeship, Northern District of Alabama
(MONTGOMERY) – Attorney General Steve Marshall praised the confirmation of
Corey Maze to serve as a District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of Alabama. Maze, a former Solicitor General of the State of Alabama, was
nominated for the federal judgeship by President Trump and was confirmed by the U.S.
“Through its confirmation vote today, the U.S. Senate acknowledged what those of us
in the Alabama Attorney General’s Office already know,” said Attorney General
Marshall. “Corey Maze is abundantly qualified to serve on the federal bench. His
record as Solicitor General of the State of Alabama and Special Deputy Attorney
General is deep and exemplary. He shepherded the State’s Special Litigation Unit acting
as primary counsel in many complex cases ranging from the landmark 2010 BP oil spill
case to the state’s opioid litigation.
“During his tenure in the Attorney General’s Office, Corey Maze argued cases as
Alabama’s Solicitor General before the U.S. Supreme Court and has been recognized
with three “Best Brief” awards from the National Association of Attorneys General. He
also brings experience as a successful criminal trials and appeals prosecutor in the
Attorney General’s Office.”
Corey Maze, a native of Centre, Alabama, graduated with a B.A., summa cum laude,
from Auburn University in 1999 and received his J.D., cum laude, from the Georgetown
University Law Center in 2003.
“I was pleased to support Mr. Maze’s nomination by President Trump, and I join all of
his colleagues and friends in congratulating him on his confirmation as federal judge
for the Northern District of Alabama,” said Attorney General Marshall.
Maze is the second employee of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office to be confirmed
to the federal bench this year. The other, Solicitor General Andrew Brasher, was
confirmed to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama on May first.
