Mosman to be US Attorney for Oregon
WASHINGTON, DC -- US President George W. Bush announced yesterday that he
will nominate Michael W. Mosman as US Attorney for Oregon. Mosman is a
graduate of BYU's J. Reuben Clark Law School and of Ricks college, which
last year named him Outstanding Young Alumni for 2000.
Mosman has been serving as acting US Attorney since May when Kristine Olson
left the position. He was one of four candidates that Bush considered for
the position, but was the only one who had served as a Federal prosecutor.
He has been an Assistant US Attorney in Oregon since 1988, until recently
pursuing crimes made on tribal lands in the state. Last year he was named
head of the federal Organized Crime Strike Force based in Portland.
Mosman graduated from Ricks College in 1979, going on to finish his
undergraduate work at Utah State University in 1981. He received a juris
doctorate from BYU in 1984 and went on to clerk for US Supreme Court Justice
Lewis Powell. He then went to work for Portland law firm Miller Nash LLP
before accepting the position as Assistant US Attorney.
