Thank you, John (Huber), for that kind introduction and for your leadership in the District of Utah.  What a pleasure it is to be back in the Tenth Circuit, where I began my legal career as a judicial law clerk.   Thanks also to the other federal leaders who are here today, including the U.S. Attorney for New Mexico, John Anderson; First Assistant U.S. Attorney for Arizona, Betsy Strange; and First Assistant U.S. Attorney for Colorado, Matthew Kirsch.  I know that each of your offices, along with DOJ’s Office for Victims of Crime, put in a lot of hard and good work to prepare for and host this conference each year.  And I know that, on a daily basis, you and your teams are working tenaciously to fight violent crime, to drive down opioid and other drug overdoses, and to defend and advance the rule of law in our courts.  You are getting results, so keep up the fight.
