CBC News: U.S. prosecutor sues Ashcroft:

"A U.S. federal prosecutor in one of the first war on terror trials is suing Attorney General John Ashcroft, alleging he was investigated for raising concerns about the war on terror.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Convertino, who was removed from the case, is seeking damages under the Privacy Act. Convertino alleges his First Amendment rights were violated when details about a Justice Department internal investigation into his conduct during the trial were leaked to the media. "
