More on Jay Dobyns case
Got into the Court of Claims docket-- here's the ruling (pdf) in which the Court accuses the Department of Justice attorneys of having committed a fraud on the Court. That's the document which the Court recently ordered unsealed. The uppermost entry is sealed, but from the language -- "Until further order, the Clerk of Court shall not accept filings" -- suggests it's the order that the nine DoJ and ATF attorneys were banned from filing further pleadings in the case. It's a rather startling sanction -- get out of my court, NOW!
The judgment (the order ruling that Plaintiff won) is still sealed. But it must be pretty explosive. Here's the Court docket for that time period. Notice right after entering the judgment, the Court orders that copies of the judgment be served on the Attorney General, the DOJ Inspector General (responsibility to prevent fraud, waste and abuse) and the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (charged with investigating ethics violations). I've never seen a court order anything like that.
UPDATE: here's more, from NYC legal blogger Arkady Bukh.
