New White-Collar Man Named for U.S. Attorney

It didn’t take long to replace Miles Ehrlich, the Northern District U.S. attorney’s white-collar chief who formally announced his departure last week. Late Friday, U.S. Attorney Kevin Ryan sent out a letter saying that Michael Wang — the current major crimes division chief — would take over the white-collar division at the end of the year.

Wang “has had approximately 17 trials in which he’s obtained convictions in every one,? Eumi Choi, Ryan’s second-in-command, said Friday evening. Wang, she added, joined the office in 2000, after clerking for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Rory Little, a professor at Hastings College of the Law — and also a former Northern District AUSA who clerked on the Supreme Court — said Friday that Wang is a good choice. “He’s one of the smartest lawyers I’ve ever met,? Little said.
