AG Jepsen Names Jane Rosenberg Connecticut's New Solicitor General
Attorney General George Jepsen today announced that long-time Assistant Attorney General Jane Rosenberg has been promoted within the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General to serve as an Associate Attorney General and the state's Solicitor General.
Rosenberg succeeds former Solicitor General Gregory T. D'Auria, who earlier this week was unanimously confirmed by the state Senate and House of Representatives, and was subsequently sworn in, as an Associate Judge of the Connecticut Supreme Court. As Solicitor General, Rosenberg will serve as a member of the Attorney General's senior staff and will oversee all of the office's appellate casework and the issuance of formal opinions.
"Jane Rosenberg is held in the highest regard by her colleagues in the office and across Connecticut's legal community for her intellect, temperament and accomplishments," said Attorney General Jepsen. "She has a thoughtful and deliberate approach that is extremely well-suited to the important role of Solicitor General. We're indebted to now-Justice Gregory D'Auria for his superb work as our first ever Solicitor General, and we have every confidence that Jane will continue the successful management of our appellate practice."
"I'm very grateful for this opportunity and for the confidence that Attorney General Jepsen has in me," said Rosenberg, "and I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Connecticut in this new and exciting role."
Rosenberg graduated from Yale University in 1979 and earned her juris doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1984. She worked for two years as an associate in the corporate law department at the Robinson & Cole law firm before first joining the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General in 1987 under former Attorney General Joseph Lieberman.
After a two-year separation, Rosenberg rejoined the Office of the Attorney General as an assistant attorney general in 1992, where she worked on numerous cases including the state's tobacco litigation. Since 2001, Rosenberg has worked in the office's Special Litigation Department, which represents and advises client agencies that include the state's constitutional offices. Rosenberg has represented state officials in both state and federal courts and has briefed, or briefed and argued, more than 70 appeals in state and federal court, including appeals challenging the constitutionality of state laws.
A native of Canton, Mass., Rosenberg and her family have lived in Glastonbury since 1986.
