With its focus turning to the courtroom, the Enron Task Force will get its third director since being created in early 2002. Sean Berkowitz, a former prosecutor in the Chicago U.S. Attorney's Office, will take over as director from original task force member Andrew Weissman.

Berkowitz joined the task force in late 2003, after working in Chicago's criminal division for five years. A Harvard Law School graduate, he is already part of the prosecutorial team that will make the case against Enron founder Ken Lay and former chief executive Jeff Skilling in January 2006. Prosecutor Kathryn Ruemmler, who also joined the task force in 2003 and is assigned to the January trial, will serve as assistant director.
