A Cherokee County native currently who is serving as the Special Deputy Attorney General for the State of Alabama may soon move to a spot on the world stage
Corey L. Maze, who grew up in Centre, has been nominated by President Donald Trump for a federal judgeship position. If confirmed, he will serve as District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama
Since 2011, Maze has served as Chief of the Attorney General’s Special Litigation Unit and has acted as the State’s primary counsel in complex civil matters such as the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the on-going opioid crisis. From 2008 to 2011, he served as the Solicitor General of Alabama – and during that period he argued three cases in the Supreme Court of the United States and won three “Best Brief Awards” from the National Association of Attorneys General. Prior to his appointment as Solicitor General, he prosecuted criminal trials and appeals for five years as Assistant Attorney General.
Maze is a graduate of Auburn University and Georgetown University Law Center.
