Washington, D.C. -- On Wednesday, February 23, 2011, two watchdog groups filed a lengthy bar complaint with the Board of Professional Responsibility in Washington D.C. against Hunton & Williams attorneys Richard Wyatt, John Woods and Robert Quackenboss for their participation in a dirty tricks campaign against the groups. The complaint can be viewed at http://www.velvetrevolution.us/images/H_W_Bar_complaint.pdf. Two weeks ago, 71,000 emails created by investigators working for Hunton & Williams were leaked by the hacktivist network Anonymous. They showed that the lawyers, on behalf of their clients, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Bank of America, solicited and conspired with the investigators to engage in a long list of criminal conduct and intentional torts against reporters, NGOs and Unions. This has been reported widely in the national press, including the Washington Post. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/14/AR2011021406281.html?wprss=rss_nation
