MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - The former U.S. attorney for New Hampshire has been named Manchester’s new interim city solicitor.

Emily Gray Rice was confirmed Monday by the city’s aldermen and started immediately.

The position was open after long-time City Solicitor Tom Clark and his deputy announced their retirements. The attorney general’s office had complained that the city solicitor’s office failed to successfully prosecute a number of domestic violence cases.

Gray resigned in March after Attorney General Jeff Sessions sought the resignation of Rice and other federal prosecutors who were holdovers from the Obama administration.
