Attorney General Jeff Sessions Appoints Kenji Price As Interim United States Attorney

News Release from US DoJ, January 3, 2017

HONOLULU -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions today announced the appointment of Kenji Price as Interim United States Attorney pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 546, which provides that “the Attorney General may appoint a United States Attorney for the district in which the office of United States Attorney is vacant.”  This appointment will take effect on January 5, 2018.

“Kenji Price is a former Army Ranger with two Bronze stars, and a former federal prosecutor who worked organized crime, public corruption, and international drug trafficking cases—including against the Sinaloa Cartel,” said Attorney General Sessions.  “He will bring this outstanding background to the job of Interim U.S. Attorney for Hawaii. I am confident he will excel in this role as he has in every other.”

Mr. Price grew up in Hawaii and is currently a director at Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing, where his practice focuses on white collar criminal defense and commercial litigation.  Prior to joining Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing, Mr. Price was a Partner and Of Counsel at Carlsmith Ball LLP, in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Mr. Price previously served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York, where he prosecuted a variety of cases involving domestic and international narcotics trafficking and other federal offenses.  He clerked for the Honorable Kent A. Jordan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the Honorable Robert B. Kugler of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.  Mr. Price completed his undergraduate studies at Gonzaga University, and obtained his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.  He also served as an officer in the U.S. Army for approximately four years, during which he served as a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment and the 173rd Airborne Brigade.

Upon the appointment of Mr. Price as Interim United States Attorney, Acting United States Attorney Elliot Enoki will resume his role as First Assistant United States Attorney.
