You've probably already heard the story of Richard Convertino, the Assistant US Attorney from Detriot who's just sued John Ashcroft for 'gross mismanagement' and various bad acts stemming out of a counter-terrorism case in Detriot.
Convertino also accused Justice officials of intentionally divulging the name of one of his confidential terrorism informants (CI) to retaliate against him.
The leak put the informant at grave risk, forced him to flee the United States and 'interfered with the ability of the United States to obtain information from the CI about current and future terrorist activities,' the suit alleges.
