Justice Department's man in Baghdad

Justice Department's man in Baghdad, Seattle P-I, Dec. 18, 2007:

An assistant U.S. attorney whose day job is defending federal hospitals from medical malpractice claims will soon find himself in a very different role: heading the Justice Department's operations in Iraq.

Phil Lynch, 56, has been appointed to a one-year stint as 'rule of law coordinator' in Baghdad, meaning he will oversee efforts to advise judges, lawyers and police officers in Iraq's nascent, overwhelmed legal system.
A little more about Lynch is in a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office (W.D. Wash.).
