SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's new U.S. attorney is now on the job.
U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart administered the oath of office Wednesday to David B. Barlow. President Barack Obama nominated Barlow to the post and the U.S. Senate confirmed him last month.
Barlow, who earned an undergraduate degree in political science at Brigham Young University and a law degree from Yale, previously worked as chief counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee for Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah. In private practice, Barlow argued a variety of cases, including pharmaceutical, contract, insurance, defamation, medical device, consumer and industrial products, and First Amendment issues.
He replaces Carlie Christensen.
