History

The Office of the United States Attorney was first created by the Judiciary Act of 1789, which provided for the appointment in each judicial district of a "Person learned in the law to act as attorney for the United States...whose duty it shall be to prosecute in each district all delinquents for crimes and offenses cognizable under the authority of the United States, and all civil actions in which the United States shall be concerned..."

Appointment

The U.S. Attorney is appointed by the President of the United States[1] for a term of four years,[2] with appointments subject to confirmation by the Senate. A U.S. Attorney shall continue in office, beyond the appointed term, until a successor is appointed and qualified.[3] By law, each United States attorney is subject to removal by the President.[4] The Attorney General may appoint interim U.S. Attorneys to fill a vacancy. The governing statute, title 28, section 546 of the United States Code.[5] used to provide: The presidential seal was first used in 1880 by President Rutherford B. Hayes and last modified in 1959 by adding the 50th star for Hawaii The President of the United States of America is the head of state and head of government of the United States. ...

(c) A person appointed as United States attorney under this section may serve until the earlier of—

(1) the qualification of a United States attorney for such district appointed by the President under section 541 of this title; or
(2) the expiration of 120 days after appointment by the Attorney General under this section.
(d) If an appointment expires under subsection (c)(2), the district court for such district may appoint a United States attorney to serve until the vacancy is filled. The order of appointment by the court shall be filed with the clerk of the court.

On March 9, 2006, President George W. Bush signed into law the USA PATRIOT Act[6] which amends Section 546 by striking subsections (c) and (d) and inserting the following new subsection: The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-56), known as the USA PATRIOT Act or simply the Patriot Act, is an American act which President Bush signed into law on October 26, 2001. ...

(c) A person appointed as United States attorney under this section may serve until the qualification of a United States Attorney for such district appointed by the President under section 541 of this title.

This, in effect, extinguishes the 120 day limit on interim U.S. Attorneys, and their appointment has an indefinite term. If the president fails to put forward any nominee to the Senate, then the Senate confirmation process is avoided, as the Attorney General-appointed interim U.S. Attorney shall continue in office. Due to the dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy, the United States Senate scheduled hearings in March 2007 to consider repealing the amendments of the USA PATRIOT Act to the interim appointment statute. On March 20, 2007, the Senate voted to overturn the provision. [7] If passed by the House of Representatives, this proposed change would be sent to the President, who could either sign it or veto it.
