Audrey Strauss, the former top deputy to Geoffrey Berman, is set to take over the reins of the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office this week, after her old boss agreed to resign Saturday following a 20-hour standoff with U.S. Attorney General William Barr over his removal.

Berman’s initial refusal to step down on Friday night was widely praised over the weekend for helping to secure continuity within the Southern District of New York, an office that has historically prided itself on its independence.
