In connection with its criminal and civil enforcement efforts, the United States Attorney's Office occasionally selects, or participates in the selection of, monitors, receivers, special masters, claims administrators, and similar appointments. In some instances, depending on the circumstances and exigencies of the case, the United States Attorney's Office will solicit applications for such positions. Cases (if any) in which we are currently soliciting applications are listed below.
United States ex rel. Anti-Discrimination Center of Metro New York, Inc. v. Westchester County, New York, 06 Civ. 2860 (DLC) (S.D.N.Y.)
The United States Attorney’s Office invites applications from qualified persons to serve as the Monitor under the terms of the Stipulation and Order of Settlement and Dismissal entered in this case on August 10, 2009 (the “Consent Decree”). The duties of the Monitor are described in the Consent Decree. In addition, the outgoing Monitor, in his Monitor Resignation Letter dated July 18, 2016, has explained his view of the work that remains to be done in this case. As set forth in those documents, the duties of the Monitor include evaluating the County’s compliance with the provisions of the Consent Decree; filing reports with the Court on compliance; reviewing and analyzing a wide range of submissions relating to the design and construction of housing, local zoning, and public information and awareness campaigns; meeting with and negotiating with local government officials; and resolving disputes between local governments, the County, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Department of Justice. There is no specific term for the Monitor position, but the Consent Decree includes several obligations that the County must complete no later than December 31, 2016, and the Monitor will be obliged to assess whether the County met those obligations. Because of the complexity of this case, and the requirement that the Monitor file reports with the Court, the Monitor should be an attorney admitted to practice in the Southern District of New York. Interested persons should complete a Monitor Application and email it to Jamie.Tovar@usdoj.gov by August 5, 2016.
