Attorney General Resigns


February 10, 2009

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today accepted the resignation of Attorney General Talis Colberg. Deputy Attorney General for the Criminal Division Rick Svobodny has been named acting attorney general.

"I determined that it was in the best interest of the State of Alaska to move on and pursue other opportunities," Colberg said. "It was an honor to serve for the past two years."

"Talis is a highly intelligent, thoughtful and reserved scholar who brought considerable legal knowledge and great personal integrity to the position," Governor Palin said. "I appreciate his willingness to serve and as the search for a new attorney general begins, I will look for someone with the same strong moral character as Talis. I wish him well in his future endeavors."
