Judge fines R.I. AG for contempt

The judge in the lead paint case fined Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Lynch $5,000 and held him in civil contempt for maligning paint makers in the media, in violation of the state rules of professional conduct and an earlier instruction by the judge. Lynch denies the charge. Jane Genova has more here and here, as does Peter Lattman.
