Kuester for the Eastern District of Oklahoma; Jessie K. Liu for the District of Columbia; Richard W. Moore for the Southern District of Alabama; and Jay E. Town for the Northern District of Alabama. Of the nominees, three have BigLaw connections.

Jay Town of Alabama was formerly an associate at McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter.
