President Obama announced four new nominations for U.S. Attorney this week:

Laura Duffy has been nominated in the Southern District of California. She is currently the Assistant U.S. attorney and has worked in the Southern District 1997. She would replace interim U.S. Attorney Karen P. Hewitt, who has held the position since Carol Lam was forced out in a 2006 “purge”.

Wilfredo Ferrer has been nominated in the Southern District of Florida. He is currently the assistant Dade County, Florida Attorney and served as deputy chief to then Attorney General Janet Reno. He would succeed R. Alexander Acosta, who stepped down last summer. Acosta’s Deputy Jeffrey H. Sloman is acting U.S. Attorney until Ferrer is confirmed.


Alicia Limtiaco has been nominated in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. She will replace U.S. Attorney Leonardo Rapadas, who has served since 2003.

John B. Stevens Jr. has been nominated in the Eastern District of Texas. He is currently a Jefferson County, Texas, Judge and would succeed Rebecca Gregory.
