Former U.S. Attorney Reprimanded

The former United States Attorney for the District of Arizona has agreed to a reprimand by the Presiding Disciplinary Judge.

The misconduct involved a leak in connection with the investigation into Fast & Furious.

The reprimand notes that the attorney acted "under tremendous strain as [his office] dealt with an unprecedented series of national issues." He was motivated by a sense that his office was not being fairly portrayed in the media and not adequately defended by the Department of Justice. He had no pecuniary motive. (Mike Frisch)
