Day at Justice

During this year's NAFUSA conference in Washington, all NAFUSA members were invited to attend a "Day at Justice": an entire afternoon at Main Justice. The format was informal, with NAFUSA members leading a "dialogue" with Department leaders. NAFUSA President Jay Stephens led a discussion with DAG Jim Cole; Ken Wainstein with FBI Director Jim Comey; Joe Whitley with Associate AG Tony West; and incoming NAFUSA President Don Stern with EOUSA Director Marshall Jarrett, AGAC Chair Loretta Lynch and Associate Deputy AG David Margolis.


The event was hosted by EOUSA which did a great job of making NAFUSA members comfortable and welcome. At the end of the discussion, EOUSA invited the NAFUSA members to gather in the DOJ courtyard for a group photo, shown above.

Bromwich Appointed Monitor in Apple E-Book Case

Michael BromwichOn Wednesday, October 16, 2013, U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, SDNY, appointed NAFUSA life member Michael Bromwich to monitor Apple's antitrust policies and procedures for two years. Judge Cote found Apple guilty of colluding with five of the six largest publishers in the U.S. in an e-book price-fixing scheme.


Bromwich was selected by President Obama in June 2010 to reform the regulation and oversight of offshore drilling in the wake of the DeepwaterHorizon accident and oil spill. He first served as the Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy, Management Regulation and Enforcement (June 2010-September 2011), and then as Director of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (October-November 2011). Bromwich served as the chief public spokesman for the Obama Administration's reform of offshore drilling.


At the end of 2011, Bromwich left government and in 2012 joined Goodwin Proctor as a partner in its DC and New York offices, specializing in internal investigations and white-collar defense. He served as inspector general of the Department of Justice, 1994-1999. He also served as associate counsel in the Iran-Contra Office of Independent Counsel and as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School.
