Attorney General Eric Holder is slated to attend the swearing-in ceremony for the New Jersey U.S. Attorney on Monday, the Justice Department announced today.
Paul Fishman officially took the helm  of the New Jersey U.S. Attorney’s Office on Oct. 14. The Senate confirmed  him on Oct. 7. Later that month, Holder tapped  Fishman to be on the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee of U.S. Attorneys, a body that serves as the voice of the U.S. Attorneys at DOJ headquarters in Washington.
Fishman replaced Ralph Marra, who served as acting U.S. Attorney after Republican Chris Christie stepped down to mount a successful run for governor.
The Attorney General has attended five U.S. Attorney investitures thus far. He was at the swearing-in ceremonies for Timothy Heaphy  in the Western District of Virginia, Neil MacBride  in the Eastern District of Virginia, Preet Bharara in the Southern District of New York, B. Todd Jones  in Minnesota and Joyce Vance  in the Northern District of Alabama.
