Chris Myers to Continue As United States Attorney
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of North Dakota
FARGO - Effective Feb. 6, 2016, the Honorable U. S. District Court Chief Judge Ralph R. Erickson has continued the appointment of Christopher C. Myers as the United States Attorney for the District of North Dakota.
Myers stated that, "I have been honored and privileged to serve as U.S. Attorney for the District of North Dakota for the past ten months. I am excited to continue leading this dedicated and talented group of attorneys and support staff at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We strive every day to do our very best to serve the citizens of North Dakota and continue to work shoulder-to-shoulder with our federal, state, local, and tribal partners to ensure public safety. Violent crime, especially those crimes perpetrated against children, remain a priority as will the fight against organized crime.
"While violent and sophisticated criminal organizations attempt to prey on North Dakotans throughout the State, our collective law enforcement response will be swift and sure. Rest assured, we will retain the quality of life we enjoy in North Dakota. Criminal organizations will find North Dakota a particularly unfavorable place to do business."
Myers has been with the U.S. Attorney's office for nearly 14 years. Since 2013 he has served as the First Assistant U.S. Attorney until becoming Acting U.S. Attorney on March 13, 2015. Prior to becoming an Assistant U.S. Attorney in 2002, Myers served as the Chief Assistant Clay County Attorney from 1998-2002, and also served as an Assistant Cass County States Attorney and a Special Agent with the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Myers will serve as United States Attorney until the President of the United States nominates a new U.S. Attorney for North Dakota and the United States Senate confirms the nominee pursuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 541.
