Statement by U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Jersey

Earlier today, Attorney General Barr announced that, by operation of law, Audrey Strauss will become the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and will serve in that capacity until a permanent successor is in place.  Audrey Strauss is a talented and tenacious lawyer, and she is someone for whom I have a great deal of respect.  She will uphold the reputation and legacy of the Southern District and honor its fine public servants.  I commend the Attorney General on his decision to have Audrey Strauss serve in this capacity, and I look forward to continuing to do the job that I love – leading the great men and women of the District of New Jersey.
