Folo reports here that AUSA Tom Dawson has retired from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oxford, Mississippi. Dawson was my colleague at the Office of Independent Counsel-Whitewater and had an illustrious 36-year career as an AUSA. More recently Tom served as lead prosecutor in the Dickie Scruggs case. A consummate professional, Tom Dawson exemplifies the very finest non-partisan qualities and traditions of the Department of Justice prosecutorial corps. I’m truly sad to see him go and wish him the very best in all of his future endeavors.
