DC Court Lifts Sanctions on Ted Stevens' Law License

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Sen. Ted Stevens can practice law again
in the District of Columbia.
The Washington Post reports the D.C. Court of Appeals lifted
sanctions against the Alaska Republican on Monday.
In October, Stevens was convicted of lying on Senate financial
disclosure forms to hide gifts and free renovations to his house in
Alaska. He lost his seat in the 2008 race just days later.
After that conviction, a suspension order was issued barring
Stevens from practicing law in the District. But earlier this month
Stevens' conviction was vacated because of prosecutorial
misconduct.
