Statement of U.S. Attorney David B. Barlow

April 10, 2014


            “I have just informed Attorney General Holder and Senators Hatch and Lee that I have decided to conclude my service as United States Attorney this summer and return to private practice at Sidley Austin LLP. I am making this announcement in advance of my departure so that President Obama and Senators Hatch and Lee will be able to begin the process of selecting and vetting our next U.S. Attorney.

            “U.S. Attorneys are not permanent fixtures in their offices. Serving as U.S. Attorney for the better part of three years has been and continues to be the most humbling honor and privilege of my career. However, for family reasons, my wife and I have decided to make the change this summer.

            “I look forward to the remaining time I have to serve with the truly outstanding attorneys and other legal professionals in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, as well as our counterpart defense counsel; judges and court personnel; and federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement who serve the people of Utah with such distinction.”
