Finally, a nominee for the Eastern District

President Obama announced today that he would nominate Jennifer May-Parker to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. May-Parker will fill the nearly-eight year vacancy created when Judge Malcolm Howard stepped down in 2005.

A graduate of the State University of New York, May-Parker is currently the Chief of the Appellate Division at the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of North Carolina, a position she has held since 2010. She started her career as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney’s Office. She then worked as an Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Environmental Division of the North Carolina Department of Justice before moving on to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1999.
