After being on hold for almost two years, former Criminal Court Judge Keva Landrum appears to be headed to the position of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana. According to confidential sources, President Joe Biden is now prepared to move Landrum’s nomination forward. 

A graduate of Ursuline Academy and Tulane Law School where she was a classmate of former Congressman and Presidential Advisor Cedric Richmond, Landrum served as an Assistant District Attorney under Eddie Jordan and as Interim DA after Jordan’s resignation. Landrum later ran for District Attorney but was defeated by current DA Eddie Jordan. Since that election, Landrum has been practicing law with Deutsch Kerrigan LLP. 

Landrum’s nomination may have been stymied by her relationship with embattled former State Senator Karen Carter Peterson, a high school classmate. Peterson and her husband Dana Peterson both played leadership roles in Landrum’s failed race for district attorney. With Peterson’s incarceration, Landrum’s nomination is again moving forward. Landrum should receive support from both of Louisiana’s U.S. Senators. She will replace Duane Evans who has served in an interim capacity since the 2021 resignation of Trump appointee Peter Strasser.
