Selection of Regina D. Cannon as United States Magistrate Judge

Monday, January 27, 2020

On behalf of the Judges of the Northern District of Georgia, I am pleased to formally announce the selection of Ms. Regina D. Cannon to join our Court as a United States Magistrate Judge. On February 3, 2020, Ms. Cannon will assume the position to be vacated by Magistrate Judge Janet F. King, upon Judge King’s retirement on January 31, 2020. Ms. Cannon received both her Bachelor of Arts in English and Political Science and her Juris Doctor from the University of Oklahoma, where she was the recipient of several awards and recognitions.  She has a long and distinguished career of public service in the legal community including most recently eighteen years of exceptional service as a trial and appellate attorney with the Federal Defender Program in Atlanta.

Regina’s proven dedication to public service and her extensive legal experience make her a superb addition to our stellar bench of Magistrate Judges and will allow her to continue her service to the community.

Thomas W. Thrash, Jr.
Chief United States District Judge
