Interim U.S. Attorney Laurie Magid did some things that bothered people enough that they didn’t want to wait for her replacement.  One thing involved a fundraiser.

PHILADELPHIA — In an abrupt move, interim U.S. Attorney Laurie Magid was replaced yesterday with another interim chief prosecutor for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Magid, a Republican appointee of the second Bush administration, has been overseeing the office since the departure of U.S. Attorney Patrick L. Meehan last summer.

Magid will, however, remain in the office, in the appeals division.

Her replacement is Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael L. Levy, who previously served as an interim U.S. attorney between April and September 2001, the early months of the Bush administration.
