Sanctions Recommended Against D.C. For 'Ethical Violations'

Attorneys are recommending sanctions against the D.C. government for its handling of evidence in a lawsuit arising from the mass arrests of demonstrators.

Lawyers recommended to a judge in a court filing late Tuesday that multiple attorneys for the government should be referred to the D.C. Bar and investigated for "ethical violations.''

They say it may be appropriate to refer for sanctions Irvin Nathan, the D.C. attorney general, "in light of his failure to supervise the ethical practices of his line attorneys.''

The attorney general's office says in its own court filing that its lawyers behaved appropriately and that no evidence or data was deleted.

The dispute stems from the arrests of about 400 protesters during the September 2002 meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
