S. Amanda Marshall, the top lawyer in the Child Advocacy Section of the state DOJ, is nominated to the Oregon U.S. Attorney post. Marshall was previously the Assistant Attorney in charge of the section, and an Assistant state Attorney General. From 1996 to 2001, Marshall served as a deputy district attorney for Coos County, Ore.

If confirmed, Marshall would replace interim U.S. Attorney Dwight C. Holton. Bush U.S. Attorney Karin Immergut resigned in July 2009 and later became a state judge.

Obama has nominated 78 U.S. Attorneys, 72 of whom have won Senate confirmation. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to consider three of the nominees at its hearing tomorrow.
