The United States Department of Justice has awarded U.S. Attorney Adam F. Sleeper an Attorney General’s Award for Outstanding Contributions by a New Employee. “The annual awards recognize Department of Justice employees for their extraordinary contributions to the rule of law and the pursuit of justice,” U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert said.

“AUSA Sleeper joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the fall of 2019 and currently serves as the appellate chief for the office. In addition to his responsibilities in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Sleeper supports our colleagues in the Eastern District of Oklahoma by handling appeals from that district as needed. He has also provided exceptional assistance to attorneys here in the territory and across the United States,” she said.

Prior to joining the United States Attorney’s Office, Sleeper clerked for a federal judge on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and for U.S. District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez in the District of the Virgin Islands. He is a graduate of Cornell Law School and of Connecticut College.
