    Please correct the following sentences:

    1.It is no longer my pursuit to indict him in any case.:tick:
    2.It is a different pursuit all together. ( I suggest altogether, that is, one word... )
    3.I am engaged in the pursuit of goals set earlier. :tick:
    My pursuit in the first sentence, sounds rather odd... I would suggest task, as pursuit suggests somewhat of a personal task in that context, or perhaps a hobby, which is not what you mean!

    1. I think a government attorney would be more likely to say, "I am no longer pusuing an indictment against him."
    2. Victoria's suggestion is very good. You could also say, "It's an entirely different pursuit."
    3. I agree, your version is fine. If you want something more concise, you might say, "I am (still) pursuing the original/previous goals."
