ATLANTA (AP) - President Barack Obama has nominated four judges and attorneys to serve in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

White House officials said Thursday that Georgia Court of Appeals Judge Michael P. Boggs, Atlanta attorneys, Mark Howard Cohen and Leigh Martin May, and DeKalb County State Court Judge Eleanor Louise Ross have each been nominated to serve in federal court.

Ross has served in the state court since 2011, and was a state and federal prosecutor for 15 years before that.

Cohen is a litigation partner at Atlanta firm Troutman and Sanders LLP.

Before serving in the state court of appeals, Boggs was a superior court judge in Waycross.

May is a partner at the Atlanta firm Butler, Wooten and Fryhofer LLP.
