Horowitz picked to be Justice IG

President Barack Obama has chosen Michael Horowitz to be the Justice Department’s inspector general, the administration said July 29.

Horowitz is currently a partner at the Cadwalader, Wickersham and Taft law firm. His practice deals with white-collar defense, internal investigations and regulatory compliance.

In the government, Horowitz was a commissioner on the U.S. Sentencing Commission from 2003 to 2009.

He has also worked in the Justice Department. He was deputy assistant attorney general and then chief of staff for the department's criminal division from 1999 to 2002. Before that, Horowitz was an assistant attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. He worked as chief of the public corruption section.

The Senate must confirm Horowitz to be the IG.
