SACRAMENTO – State Bar leaders this weekend broke their silence over the firing of executive director Joe Dunn, saying in a statement that he was terminated after high-level employees raised “serious, wide-ranging allegations” about him.

The statement, issued Saturday, does not identify the complainants, nor does it specify what Dunn was accused of doing. But it does say that after receiving the complaints this summer, the incoming officers of the bar’s board of trustees retained Munger, Tolles & Olson to investigate. The results of that investigation led to the board’s vote on Nov. 7 to fire Dunn, the statement says.
