Judges may appoint prosecutor to succeed Mckay

Judges may appoint prosecutor to succeed Mckay, Seattle Times, Sept. 23, 2007:

[Jeffrey] Sullivan was named acting U.S. attorney shortly after the Justice Department's controversial firing of John McKay in December. His appointment will end Oct. 12, along with those of 11 other interim U.S. attorneys, because of legislation passed this spring, according to the Justice Department. If the White House does not nominate a permanent replacement for McKay, the U.S. District Court in Seattle can name a new interim federal prosecutor. The decision would fall to the court's senior judge, Robert Lasnik, a Clinton appointee who has been preparing to fill the vacancy.
