Public official vindicated in Michigan Attorney General's criminal investigation

Client(s) Public official

Jones Day defended a high-ranking public official in a multi-year criminal investigation conducted by the Michigan Attorney General's Office concerning allegations of corruption and destruction of public records. Jones Day uncovered exculpatory evidence during an extensive factual investigation that included detailed inspection of documents, FOIA requests, and witness interviews. After Jones Day revealed its investigative findings to authorities and raised several legal challenges to the charges under consideration, the Michigan Attorney General declined to file criminal charges against our client or any other public officials in the matter.
