Before Reyes was picked by Herbert last year, he was serving as general counsel for eTAGz, a media and technology company based in Springville.

He ran for attorney general in 2012, but lost to Swallow in an ugly primary election that resulted in Reyes filing a defamation-of-character lawsuit against Swallow and others, claiming they falsely portrayed him in campaign advertisements.

The case was later dismissed.
