Sr. Justice Official RESIGNS After Role In Prosecutor Purge
DOJ Official Resignation over Prosecutor Flap

............

The department also said that Michael Battle a senior Justice official who directed the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys and who had personally informed the ousted U.S. attorneys of their removal would leave his post March 16.

Battle, who has held his post since June 2005, notified U.S. attorneys of his decision in January and had informed the department last summer that he wished to pursue opportunities in the private sector, the department said. Battle was not involved in the actual decision-making that led to the prosecutors' ouster, the department said.

"His departure is not connected to the U.S. attorney controversy whatsoever," Roehrkasse said.

But Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Judiciary Committee, which is holding one of the hearings, said the timing of Battle's resignation raises questions as to whether he is "another casualty of the U.S. attorney's imbroglio."
