The Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility found more than 650 violations of the department’s ethics rules by it’s lawyers, including 400 cases of intentional misconduct, 13 cases of constitutional rights violations, 29 cases of refusing exculpatory evidence to defendants, four cases of abuse of prosecutorial abuse, and misleading courts 48 times. There were 2100 investigations over the period from 2002-2013. Of course, we can’t know which of these lawyers were committing these violations, and I’m sure they were given the appropriate hand slap for their actions.
