In January, John Cruden J.D. ’74 was sworn in as assistant attorney general for the Department of Justice’s Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD). A West Point grad, he served in Germany and Vietnam; he was awarded the Bronze Star and Legion of Merit. After law school he rose to chief legislative counsel of the U.S. Army, then joined the ENRD, where he played a leading role in the Justice Department’s major environmental cases—including prosecution for the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska and BP’s 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
