In the announcement, Senator Kennedy noted, “I am very pleased that each of these distinguished lawyers has agreed to help identify candidates for U.S. Attorney and U.S. Marshal . . . These two positions are enormously important to the proper functioning of our federal courts.  I am confident that this Committee will identify people with the integrity, independence and sound judgment to make certain that our system of justice works for all of the people of Massachusetts.”
