Alice Fisher, the head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, has named new leaders to a number of key posts. But the moves appear at least partly influenced by Barry Sabin, who was recently named a deputy assistant attorney general under Fisher after stints running the Counterterrorism Section and as a federal prosecutor in Miami. Named as the new acting chief of the Fraud Section, which coordinates the government’s major white-collar crime cases, is Steven Tyrrell, himself a former Miami federal prosecutor. Tyrrell replaces Paul Pelletier, another former Miami federal prosecutor, who had served as the acting boss for nearly a year. Pelletier will now be demoted to the No. 2 job in the Fraud Section. The section had been without a permanent chief for more than a year now, and the naming of a new acting chief means the department will have to post the permanent job all over again. Meanwhile, the Public Integrity Section, which is handling the corruption investigation relating to Jack Abramoff, has also named a new acting chief in Eric Nucci, who, yes, is also a veteran Miami federal prosecutor. Nucci replaces Brenda Morris, who had briefly been acting boss after her predecessor, Andrew Lurie, returned to his old job in — you’ve probably guessed — the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.
