Loretta Lynch (DOJ)

Loretta E. Lynch has been sworn in as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, according to a news release.

Lynch, a former partner at Hogan & Hartson LLP (now Hogan Lovells) who served as the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney from 1999 to 2001, replaced Roslynn R. Mauskopf, who resigned in 2007 after President George W. Bush nominated her to a judgeship in the district. The district’s most recent  interim U.S. Attorney was Benton J. Campbell.

U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie administered the oath.

“I’m delighted to be back with you all again,” Lynch said, according to The New York Law Journal. “My goal is to uphold the high standards of this office.”
