Preet Bharara, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York and an Obama-era Justice Department appointee, was fired by President Donald Trump on Saturday after refusing to submit his resignation to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Bharara earned a reputation as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” for his high-profile prosecutions of white-collar criminals from 2009-2017. Bharara has won cases against CEOs, arms dealers, banks, and hackers.

Here’s a rundown of some of Bharara’s most noteworthy cases during his time as US attorney.
