The Justice Department on Monday will host a memorial service in honor of one of its own who served in the Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton administrations, one of the late DOJ official’s former colleagues told Main Justice.
The event in the Great Hall of DOJ headquarters will pay tribute to James K. Robinson, who served as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan from 1977 to 1980 and later led the DOJ Criminal Division from 1998 to 2001. He died in August after battling gastrointestinal cancer.
Attorney General Eric Holder and Associate Deputy Attorney General David Margolis are among the members of the DOJ community who are expected to deliver remarks at the service, said former Eastern District of Michigan U.S. Attorney Richard Rossman. He said the DOJ will also show a slideshow of photographs from his life at the gathering.
