McGregor Scott, President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney in California’s Eastern District, has taken the post early, thanks to a holiday appointment by the district court.

Scott, formerly a white-collar partner at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, was sworn into office Dec. 29 in Sacramento a day after U.S. Chief District Judge Lawrence O’Neill ordered his appointment.
