U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan removed trial attorney Kevin Driscoll’s name from the contempt order he issued on Friday, covered here, reports BLT: The Blog of Legal Times:

Driscoll, the judge wrote in an order today, was only recently brought into the Stevens case. Driscoll has not filed a notice of appearance. Welch, Morris, and Stemler, the judge noted in today’s order, signed relevant pleadings and have been working on the issues for months. “Therefore, under the circumstances, it was those attorneys’, and not Mr. Driscoll’s, responsibility to ensure that the government complied with the court’s orders,” Sullivan wrote.
