Scott Murray will step down asagent Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer in New Hampshire beginning Saturday.
He tendered his resignation as a US lawyer in response to President Joe Biden’s call to “replace all other US lawyers appointed by the President / confirmed by the Senate”, according to a news Release.
Former President Donald Trump appointed Murray on December 1, 2017. The Senate confirmed him on February 15, 2018. He was sworn in as the 57th US attorney for New Hampshire on March 5, 2018.
Prior to his appointment, he was serving his fourth term as Merrimack County District Attorney when he was appointed by the President. He previously served as the Chief Prosecutor for the Town of Concord from 1983 to 2011.
“It has been my greatest honor and my greatest privilege to serve as a US attorney for the past three years,” he said in a statement. “I am deeply grateful for having had the opportunity to protect the people of New Hampshire through federal law enforcement. For a career prosecutor, it was the chance of a lifetime.
First Deputy U.S. Attorney John J. Farley will serve as Acting U.S. Attorney until a new President-appointed U.S. Attorney takes office.
