Artur DavisFour lawyers, including two with ties to the US attorney’s office in Birmingham, have applied to become the next top federal prosecutor in the 31-county Northern District of Alabama.

Wednesday was the deadline for applicants to submit their names to a panel created by US Representative Artur Davis, the senior Democrat in Alabama. The panel, which includes lawyers, judges and law school deans, will help Davis decide which names to forward to the White House for consideration.
