Mayor-elect Gray nominates GULC adjunct professor for Attorney General

A member of the Georgetown University Law Center faculty is likely joining incoming Mayor Vincent Gray’s administration.

Irvin Nathan, pending confirmation from the D.C. council, will replace current Attorney General Peter Nickles.

In 2007, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appointed Nathan as the general counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives. He previously served as a deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice.

According to The Washington Post, Nathan’s appointment came as a surprise to insiders who suspected that Gray would likely appoint an African-American or a woman to the post.

In a statement announcing his appointments, Gray said that, “Nathan will join me in taking politics out of the office of the attorney general.”

Nathan is not listed on MyAccess to teach any classes next semester.
