DOJ prosecutors who secured the conviction of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens will play a reduced role in post-trial litigation, the chief of DOJ's Public Integrity Section has told a judge. Three other DOJ lawyers have been tapped to take over the litigation. The move comes just three days after the principal deputy chief of the Public Integrity Section and two other DOJ officials were found in contempt for disobeying court orders. The bulk of the post-trial litigation is rooted in allegations of prosecutorial misconduct.
