Chicago A Step Closer To Getting New Top Federal Prosecutor

The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved the nomination of John Lausch for the next U.S. District Attorney of Northern Illinois this week.

A longtime colleague describes him as a “down to earth” guy who has strong connections to local law enforcement. His nomination still needs to be confirmed by the full Senate.
