DOJ fights federal judge's order for lawyers to attend ethics training
[FOXNEWS] The Justice Department moved Tuesday to fight a federal judge’s order that its lawyers undergo mandatory ethics training, digging in after the DOJ was accused of misleading the courts over President B.O.'s immigration executive actions.

In filings Tuesday, the department said the order would "far exceed the bounds of appropriate remedies" and would cost the department millions.
How much would it cost to hold each of the lawyers in this kerfuffle in contempt? How much would it cost to have them disbarred?
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, of Texas, had issued the order earlier this month, after alleging DOJ attorneys misled him about the implementation of Obama’s executive orders on illegal immigrants colonists.

Attorneys had told Hanen that a key component ‐ an expansion of a 2012 program to protect illegal immigrants colonists from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. as children ‐ hadn’t been implemented. But officials later revealed they had given more than 108,000 people three-year reprieves from deportation under the expanded rules, as well as work permits.

Hanen blocked Obama's actions and the case is now before the Supreme Court.

Hanen’s scathing order filed on May 19 accused the DOJ of a "calculated plan of unethical conduct." He ordered that all DOJ lawyers attend a yearly ethics course. He also ordered the department to turn over the names of those who received the reprieves.

"Such conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word 'Justice,'" Hanen said.

The Department of Justice responded in the court filing Tuesday, saying that it "emphatically" disagrees with the judge’s ruling, claiming that none of its lawyers intended to deceive. The filing requests Hanen’s order be put on hold so federal lawyers can review.

#1  In only 7 years the Obama regime successfully corrupted the Executive, Legislative (Congress), and the Supreme Court. But they still have a thorn in thier side called Texas.

#2  This refers to a possible Clinton VP prospect.

Big hit tonight regarding a commercial at 10:30 tonight on 9News at 10:00 in the Denver area.

The first portion glowed over how Gov. Hickenlooper got 60 oil and gas industry leaders together at some point to work on environmental issues. The second half twice showed large upper case letters saying "Colorado has the strictest laws (of this sort) in the country," while showing great stills and moving shots of snow covered Colorado mountains.

Gov. Hickenlooper won an election in 2014, which means he's good until 2018?
