Eastern District of Pennsylvania Interim U.S. Attorney Michael Levy made several changes to his office’s leadership yesterday, less than a month after he replaced Laurie Magid, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported today.
Magid abruptly resigned a month before her 120-day interim appointment was about to expire. She was reportedly not going to be reappointed by a district court amid controversy over a Justice Department Inspector General investigation into her fund raising activities for former Eastern District of Pennsylvania U.S. Attorney Patrick Meehan, and a negative DOJ review of her management. Levy was promoted from his post as Computer-Crimes Unit Chief after her resignation.
The Inquirer reported that Levy promoted the following six Assistant U.S. Attorneys:
New Post: First Assistant
Old Post: Civil Division Chief
Joined Office: 1986
-Peter F. Schenck
New Post: Criminal Division Chief
Old Post: Commercial and Consumer Fraud Section Head

Levy also said Linda Dale Hoffa, who led the criminal division, will work on Senate Judiciary crime and drugs subcommittee for Chair Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), The Inquirer reported.
