Appellate Division

The Appellate Division represents the United States in briefing and arguing criminal and civil appeals before the Tenth Circuit arising out of the District of Colorado.  These cases cover the gamut from criminal prosecutions for murder, white-collar fraud, drugs, child pornography, and material support of terrorists to civil litigation over Colorado’s federal public lands, prisoner litigation from the Administrative Maximum prison in Florence, and other disputes involving the various federal agencies and their employees working in the state of Colorado.

The Appellate Division also works in consultation with the other litigating divisions in the District of Colorado to assist in issues that arise before, during, and after trial, including suppression issues, jury instructions, evidentiary issues, summary judgment motions, and motions for new trial.

Bishop Grewell is the Appellate Division Chief.
