Conviction For Providing Classified Information To Blogger Results in Interim Suspension

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department granted a motion to interim suspend an attorney convicted of disclosure of classified information, a federal felony.

The attorney was employed by the FBI as a linguist. He "provided classified information to an individual who hosted a public Internet blog resulting in intelligence sources and methods being compromised."

The court found no basis to set aside the interim suspension that results from a conviction for a serious crime. (Mike Frisch)
