Judge lets dis­bar­ment case be heard

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Stephen Di­nan

A Mary­land judge has al­lowed a griev­ance to move for­ward against for­mer Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Hil­lary Clin­ton’s lawyers, say­ing the bar’s re­fusal to in­ves­ti­gate the lawyers seems to vi­o­late the state’s pol­icy.

Ty Cle­venger, the lawyer who filed the griev­ance, called the de­ci­sion last week by Anne Arun­del Cir­cuit Judge Ron­ald A. Silk­worth a sur­prise vic­tory.

In the lat­est twist in the fall­out from Mrs. Clin­ton’s email server, Mr. Cle­venger says the for­mer sec­re­tary of state mis­han­dled the emails and is ask­ing that she and her lawyers be dis­barred.

Mary­land’s bar tried to brush aside the com­plaint, say­ing Mr. Cle­venger didn’t have per­sonal knowl­edge of the of­fenses, but Judge Silk­worth said the state’s bar rules have no such re­quire­ment.

“Those lawyers may yet have an­swer for de­stroy­ing thou­sands of emails,” Mr. Cle­venger wrote in a blog Mon­day.
