(10.30) Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, will speak Monday at Brown University.
As U.S. Attorney, Bharara oversaw the investigation and litigation of all criminal and civil cases brought on behalf of the United States in the Southern District of New York. He supervised an office of more than 200 Assistant U.S. Attorneys, who handled a high volume of cases involving terrorism, narcotics and arms trafficking, financial and healthcare fraud, cybercrime, public corruption, gang violence, organized crime, and civil rights violations.
In March, Bharara was one of 46 U.S. Attorneys asked to resign by President Trump. He refused and was fired. In April, Bharara joined the NYU School of Law faculty as a Distinguished Scholar in Residence.
