Arizona Solicitor General Beau Roysden has left the Attorney General’s Office after more than two years in the high-profile post.

Roysden represented the State in several high-profile cases brought by outgoing Attorney General Mark Brnovich, including arguing in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. Roysden joined the AG’s Office from private practice in 2018. Before becoming the Solicitor General, he was the Division Chief for the Appeals & Constitutional Litigation Division.

No word yet on where the University of Arizona law school graduate (2008) is headed next. The departure was not announce by Brnovich’s office, but Arizona’s Law discovered he had left on October 7 from a new filing in the Isaacson abortion case.

Arizona’s Law has asked the Attorney General’s Office about this and other high profile departures as Brnovich prepares to turn the office over to either Democrat Kris Mayes or Republican Abe Hamadeh. We will update as warranted.
