Mass. U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan to Resign Sunday, Enter Private Practice

Michael J. Sullivan, the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, announced yesterday that he plans to resign his post at midnight on Sunday to pursue a private law practice in Boston.  Sullivan has served as U.S. Attorney for the past 7 1/2 years.  A spokeswoman for Sullivan told the Boston Globe only that Sullivan “will be practicing in Boston with interest in corporate and white-collar matters.”

The Globe also reports that although Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has been interviewing potential successors for Sullivan in recent weeks, the resignation comes earlier than expected and it could be months before President Obama nominates a successor and the Senate confirms the candidate.  Typically, the first assistant US attorney becomes acting U.S. attorney until a successor is appointed.
