Immigration lawyer who leaked to McClatchy is sentenced to community service, ethics classes

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 26, 2015

The lawyer who leaked to McClatchy confidential documents on a family detention agreement was shown leniency in a hearing Monday that could have ended his legal career.

Bryan Johnson, a New York lawyer, is a former consultant to immigration attorneys negotiating with government officials over the fate of detained mothers and children. He was ordered to appear in court by U.S. District Judge Dolly M. Gee of the Central District of California after Johnson had allegedly violated a confidentiality agreement for a second time.

Gee had threatened to hold Johnson, 30, in contempt and report him to the State Bar of New York, which could have disbarred him. Instead, she sentenced Johnson to 75 hours of community service with a certified public institution as well as completing two legal ethics courses within the next six months.
