By Mary Jacoby | January 1, 2022 8:59 pm

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlie Christensen has been named acting U.S. Attorney in Utah, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Christensen will steer the office until President Obama nominates, and the Senate confirms, a successor to Brett Tolman, whose resignation as U.S. Attorney was effective Thursday.

The expected nominee is former Utah Assistant U.S. Attorney David Schwendiman,  who is now working overseas as an international prosecutor of war crimes in Bosnia, the newspaper reported. Read our previous report on Schwendiman and his political ties here.

Tolman has joined the Salt Lake City law firm of Ray Quinney & Nebeker as a partner.

The Senate Democratic leader describes the Republicans' refusal to hold hearings on President Obama's eventual Supreme Court nominee "historically unbelievable and historically unprecedented."
