New Haven — Deirdre M. Daly was sworn in Wednesday as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut by the Honorable Janet C. Hall, Chief Judge for the District.
The 54-year-old Fairfield resident had served as either acting or interim U.S. Attorney since May 14, 2013, following the resignation of her predecessor, David B. Fein. She was nominated by Barack Obama on March 13, 2014, and later confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
“I am grateful to those who supported my nomination and deeply appreciate the opportunity to serve in this position,” Daly said in a statement. “I very much look forward to continuing to work with the dedicated and talented people in our Office as well as our many law enforcement partners throughout the State.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office is charged with enforcing federal criminal laws in Connecticut and with representing the federal government in civil litigation. As U.S. Attorney, Daly supervises a staff of approximately 64 Assistant U.S.
Attorneys and 60 staff members at offices in New Haven, Hartford and Bridgeport.
She is the 51st U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, an office that was established in 1789.
