NY Court Picks NY Federal Attorney

Exercising a seldom-used Power, the Judges of the Federal District Court in Manhattan voted Unanimously on Wednesday to Appoint Geoffrey S. Berman as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, according to a Court Statement.

Mr. Berman was Appointed Interim United States Attorney in January, and his 120-day Term was due to Expire next week.

With no one yet Nominated by President Trump for the Southern District position, the Judges acted to fill it with Mr. Berman.

Under Federal Law, he will now Serve until the Senate Confirms a Nominee by President Trump, whose Administration has been Slow to Fill many Posts in the Executive and Judicial Branches.

The United States Attorney's Office in Manhattan is overseeing the Federal Investigation of Mr. Trump's Personal Lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, and it recently emerged that Mr. Berman has been Recused, for Undisclosed Reasons.

His Deputy, Robert S. Khuzami, is now Overseeing the Inquiry.
