Potentially big news in Fast and Furious, BATFE whistleblower lawsuit

It seems the judge hearing the case accused DoJ attorneys of committing fraud:

Of Arms and the LawGot 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 order also has a notice for copies to be sent to a lot of interesting people, including the Attorney General, DOJ Inspector General, and DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility.

David CodreaCommenting on revelations about Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Department of Justice (DOJ) actions in the case of retired agent Jay Dobyns against his former employer, attorney David Hardy equated them with “a BATF and DOJ Watergate... or worse,” Friday. Noting that actions taken over a civil lawsuit evidently have included concealing evidence, secret threats against witnesses, and surveillance of attorneys and witnesses, the new information lends further credence to Dobyns’ allegations and appears to show government lawyers engaged in a criminal conspiracy.

And remember, it's not just a plaintiff making those allegations; it's a judge, in a ruling on the case.

There's an awful lot of smoke here. Fire seems likely.
