Rachel Paulose, who served as U.S. Attorney for Minnesota in 2006 and 2007, has joined the international law firm DLA Piper as a partner and litigator in the Minneapolis office.

She’d been appointed to the U.S. Attorney job by President George W. Bush and was the first Indian-American to hold that position, the Star Tribune says. She resigned under pressure and took a job with the Justice Department in Washington. Eric Black wrote a year later about her problems in a whistle-blower case.

The paper said she’s also been a special assistant to the attorney general and a senior trial counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission. She’s been in private practice, too, with Dorsey & Whitney and Williams & Connolly in Washington.
