Our graduate and adjunct faculty member Steven Biskupic announced yesterday that he is stepping down from his post as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, effective January 9. Steve made us proud over his six years of distinguished service in this important position, winning convictions in many high-profile public corruption cases. It is customary for U.S. Attorneys to resign after a new President is elected, but this is one instance in which the community may be ill-served by the custom. Best wishes, Steve, in your new endeavors!
Steve’s counterpart in the Western District, Erik Peterson (who is also a Marquette alum), has not yet announced his plans.
