Enhancing Safety and Security

We do this by defending and enforcing border and immigration laws, and by protecting classified information from disclosure in litigation
 
 
Protecting Vulnerable Victims, Civil Rights, Servicemembers and Veterans' Rights, and Collecting Restitution for Crime Victims
 
Our Civil Division has an important role to play in combatting the opioid crisis, primarily by using civil remedies such as penalties and injunctions, available under the Controlled Substances Act to address violations by regulated entities.
 
Our office has built a thriving civil rights practice, focusing primarily on protecting the rights of individuals with disabilities, and including various other types of civil rights matters.
 
Additionally, our office is fortunate to have an Assistant United States Attorney to focus exclusively on the Department's Servicemembers and Veterans Initiative. This AUSA works District-wide to enforce the Servicmember Civil Relief Act (SCRA) and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).
 
Finally, we are commited to collecting restitution for crime victims. This is done through the Financial Litigation Unit, where we are making concerted efforts to increase restitution collection at the pre-judgment stage.
 
Faquier County Agrees to Resolve ADA Review of Polling Locations. Fauquier County has agreed to resolve an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance review of its polling locations to ensure that its polling locations comply with the ADA.
 
Medical Center Agrees to Settle ADA Claim with Individual Who is Deaf. The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced a $121,000 settlement agreement under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with the Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center (SRMC), a wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of HCA Holdings, Inc. located in Fredericksburg, in a case in which the hospital failed to furnish sign language interpreter services to an individual who is deaf during the provision of medical services to her and her mother.
