Obama Names Replacement for Brooklyn U.S. Attorney

WASHINGTON (Reuters) —

President Barack Obama on Thursday nominated an attorney to serve in the Eastern District of New York — the Brooklyn-based office which was vacated earlier this year when Loretta Lynch was promoted to Attorney General.

Following the announcement, Lynch said that Robert Capers, already a senior litigation counsel in the public integrity section, would begin serving as interim U.S. Attorney on Oct. 19.

Capers, a long-time career prosecutor, held numerous roles within the Eastern District of New York and also previously served as an assistant district attorney in New York City.
