DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers announced today that he has appointed Vincent E. Morscher as the Deputy Attorney General overseeing the Colorado Department of Law’s Civil Litigation and Employment Law Section.
“I am pleased to welcome Vince to my senior staff,” Suthers said. “Since joining the office in 1996, Vince has demonstrated the highest level of commitment to the legal work of the state. Vince has risen through the ranks and is an outstanding example of what hard work and natural talent can accomplish. I look forward to working with him in this new capacity.”
The Civil Litigation and Employment Law Section defends state agencies and employees that are sued in state and federal courts by persons claiming personal injuries, property damage and employment discrimination. The section also defends the state in cases where individuals claim their constitutional rights have been violated by state actions. Finally, the section defends the state in personnel actions brought by state employees.
Morscher joined the Office of the Attorney General as a legal assistant in May 1996. After joining the office, Morscher began attending the University of Denver Sturm College of Law at night. Following his graduation and admission to the state bar, Morscher became an assistant attorney general working in the area of civil rights, state personnel cases and workers compensation. Morscher became a first assistant attorney general overseeing the office’s Employment, Personnel and Civil Rights Unit in 2008. Prior to joining the Colorado Department of Law, Morscher worked as a legal assistant at Gregson & Pixler, P.C., in Denver.
Morscher is a 2003 graduate of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and a 1992 graduate of Arizona State University.
