US Attorney Southern District of New York

Boyd Johnson, the Deputy U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, will join the New York office of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, the law firm announced today.

Johnson has been second in command to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara since August 2009 and has been working for the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office since 1999.

The SDNY has actively gone after the online poker sector in recent years with that office making headlines once again by announcing two big name poker pros as part of an amended complaint against Full Tilt Poker, a company these individuals represented. 

Johnson is best known for his investigation into then Governor Eliot Spitzer.
