WASHINGTON – Sujit Raman of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Maryland was one of 179 members of the Department of Justice recognized by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) Director Monty Wilkinson at the 33rd Director’s Awards Ceremony today in Washington D.C.


The District of Maryland was one of 35 districts represented at the ceremony which was held in the Great Hall at the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building.


In his prepared remarks, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein told the awardees, “These 179 award recipients embody the best of the Department of Justice.… Today’s honorees have earned the esteem of their colleagues. But most importantly, you have earned the gratitude of your fellow citizens — whose communities you have made safer, whose lives you have improved, and whose trust you have rewarded. ”

Sujit Raman was recognized for his exceptional contributions to the briefing and argument of appellate cases and for his outstanding leadership in managing the appellate practice of the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland. Mr. Raman has played a pivotal role in developing and persuasively advocating the government’s positions on cutting-edge Fourth Amendment issues at the intersection of privacy, technology, and national security.


Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning noted “As a counselor to his colleagues and as an advocate in court, Mr. Raman is trusted for the quality of his advice, the integrity of his positions, and the exceptional and understated manner in which he represents the interests of the United States.”
