NATIONAL BRIEFING / WASHINGTON, D.C.

Times Wire Reports

A former U.S. attorney for Nevada who was forced to resign during the Bush administration could soon be getting his old job back.

President Obama nominated Daniel G. Bogden to serve as the U.S. attorney for Nevada. Bogden was one of nine federal prosecutors told to resign by senior Justice Department officials during the Bush administration. The move led to resignations at the department and investigations into whether politics prompted the dismissals.

In testimony before Congress, Justice Department officials cited no particular deficiency in Bogden's performance.
