Laurie O. Robinson (DOJ)

Laurie O. Robinson was tapped for the post Sept. 14. She was named OJP Acting Assistant Attorney General in January and served in that capacity until her nomination. Robinson became Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General after her nomination because she cannot be a nominee and serve in an acting position at the same time.

She previously served as the OJP Assistant Attorney General from 1993 to 2000. During her tenure as President Clinton’s OJP chief, the annual appropriations for the office grew from $800 million to more than $4 billion, according to her biography.

Robinson would succeed Bush OJP head Jeffrey Sedgwick, who resigned in January.
