Does Lanny Breuer Have A Conflict?

Discussed here is the alleged Brady violations in the James A. Brown case, a former Merrill Lynch executive who was convicted of perjury and obstruction and is contesting these charges on several grounds. So far the case has been fraught with issues.

According to the defense brief filed by Counsel for James A. Brown (Daniel K. Hedges, Sidney Powell, and Torrence E. Lewis), Breuer used to represent a co-defendant and had been conflicted out of the case.  Is this an oops....
