ANCHORAGE - An ethics investigation of the former U.S. Attorney for Alaska has been dropped after a federal court committee found no cause to pursue a case against Bob Bundy.
Bundy was accused by the judge in the corruption trial of former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of sending signals to the government's chief informant, Bill Allen, while Allen was in the witness stand.
Bundy was Allen's attorney, representing him through his guilty plea to bribery in 2007 and his sentencing to three years in prison last October.
Bundy denied he signaled anything to Allen and prosecutors came to his defense.
The Anchorage Daily News reported that a grievance committee of the federal district court in Washington, D.C., said in a letter it had reviewed the complaint by U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan and "determined that no further action will be taken."
