paulose steps down

Rachel K. Paulose, the controversial U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota, announced today that she would be stepping down to go work at the Justice Department in Washington on legal policy issues: U.S. Attorney in Minnesota Is Reassigned. The announcement came in wake of reports of new staff turmoil in her office, with at least one senior lawyer resigning from his management post in Minneapolis last week in a protest over her leadership. Her office also made news last April when three other managers gave up their administrative job in a similar protest. Wow, people must really not like working with her.
