New general counsel for DCPS

By Bill Turque

Robert Utiger, a long-time senior litigator for the D.C. attorney general's office, is the new DCPS general counsel. He replaces James Sandman, who was named president of the Legal Services Corporation earlier this month.

Utiger has represented the District in numerous big civil matters, including the Blackman-Jones special education cases and the Washington Teachers' Union suit challenging the legality of former Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee's decision to layoff more than 260 teachers in the fall of 2009.

Like Sandman, Utiger doesn't talk much. He didn't return a phone message left with his office on Friday.

And what is his salary? Seems like with the budget crisis and furloughs, DCPS could have "shared" a lawyer from the AG's office.
