Summary

The scheduled appointment of a new director for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California was delayed last week. The leading candidate is believed to be Raymond Juzaitis of Los Alamos National Laboratory. Sources say that rivalry between the two weapons labs may have played a role in the delay, along with the fact that Juzaitis once supervised Wen Ho Lee, the former Los Alamos computer scientist who was accused of spying but never charged with espionage.
