Attorney General William P. Barr today announced that Corey F. Ellis has been named Acting Director of the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA). Ellis is filling the position that has been held since December 2017 by James A. Crowell IV, who was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.
“Jim Crowell has provided exemplary leadership to EOUSA and the United States Attorneys’ community,” said Attorney General Barr. “Jim’s commitment to ensuring justice is served for everyone has been the hallmark of his distinguished career. The Department’s loss is very much the Judiciary’s gain.”
Prior to this appointment, which will be effective September 16, Ellis served in several positions in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General, including Chief of Staff to Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. Before joining the Deputy Attorney General’s office, Ellis was the First Assistant United States Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina, where he began as an Assistant United States Attorney in 2005. During his tenure in the United States Attorney’s Office, Mr. Ellis handled a range of cases including organized crime, computer hacking and intellectual property, international money laundering, public corruption, violent crimes, financial fraud and capital crime cases.
“I look forward to continuing to work with Corey in his new role as Director of EOUSA,” said Attorney General Barr. “As a career prosecutor with a stellar record, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about the United States Attorneys’ community to the job, and I am confident he will help continue to build upon our many successes in enforcing the rule of law, deterring crime, and bringing criminals to justice.”
