Federal prosecutors have agreed not to offer as evidence at Greg Craig’s trial the settlement his former law firm, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, reached in January to resolve claims that it failed to disclose past work for the Russia-aligned government of Ukraine.

Craig, a former Skadden partner in Washington who earlier served as the top lawyer in the Obama White House, is charged in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia with misleading authorities about his preparation of a report on the prosecution of Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister of Ukraine and political rival of the country’s president at the time, Viktor Yanuovych. Craig, represented by a team from Zuckerman Spaeder, contends he was not required to disclose his work under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, an 80-year-old law requiring the disclosure of lobbying work for foreign governments and other overseas interests.
