Both Gregory Davis, U.S. attorney for southern Mississippi, and Felicia Adams, U.S. attorney for northern Mississippi, have resigned. Their decisions followed Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ request that all U.S. attorneys appointed by President Barack Obama step down.

Taking over their positions are Harold Brittain, now acting as the top federal prosecutor in southern Mississippi, and Robert Norman, filling that post in northern Mississippi, according to an Associated Press report.

President Donald J. Trump must now nominate new U.S. attorneys for Senate confirmation.

Brittain and Norman automatically took over as the top assistant U.S. attorney in each district.
