A report by a special committee of The World Bank Group questions Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher's review of World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz's transfer of his girlfriend to a high-paying job at the State Department. After reviewing the deal in 2005, a team from the firm concluded that the contract was "a reasonable resolution of the perceived underlying conflict of interest." But the bank concluded this week that the review was "at odds with the high degree of ... concern for the interests of" the World Bank.
