LOS ANGELES – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement on the passing of Janet Reno, U.S. Attorney General from 1993-2001:

"Our nation has lost a fierce advocate with the passing of Janet Reno, who served our country with dedication and a deep commitment to justice, especially for the most vulnerable among us.  I extend my deepest condolences to her family and friends.  As the first woman to serve our country as Attorney General and the longest serving Attorney General of the 20th Century, she forged a new path for a generation of women in law enforcement and government to follow. I will forever be grateful for her encouragement and support."
