Acting U.S. attorney named to replace exiting Pak – Atlanta Journal Constitution

Messages left Tuesday morning at U.S. Attorney’s offices in Atlanta and Augusta were not immediately returned.

Christine earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and his law degree from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham. He is a veteran of the war in Iraq and began serving as an Army reservist at the age of 17. Christine’s current rank is Brigadier General.

Pak did not give a reason for his sudden resignation. But he said he was grateful for the chance to serve in the position.

“It has been the greatest honor of my professional career to have been able to serve my fellow citizens as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia,” Pak said late Monday in an emailed statement. “I have done my best to be thoughtful and consistent, and to provide justice for my fellow citizens in a fair, effective and efficient manner. I am grateful to President Trump and the United States Senate for the opportunity to serve, and to former Attorneys General (Jeff) Sessions and (William) Barr for their leadership of the department.”
