The office that polices lawyers in the District of Columbia is investigating whether prominent lawyer Joseph E. diGenova violated ethics rules by falsely claiming he supervised the federal prosecution of John W. Hinckley Jr., who tried to assassinate President Reagan, sources said.
Prominent D.C. lawyer Joseph E. diGenova has billed himself as a battle-tested former prosecutor who supervised the high-profile prosecution of John W. Hinckley Jr., who tried to kill President Reagan. But Mr. diGenova had no role in the prosecution or the trial, according to court records and those who did prosecute the case.
"You can spend your life correcting news stories," he said.
"Nothing in Mr. diGenova's version of events occurring well after the trial ended gives him the right to repeatedly misrepresent his role in the trial," said Mr. Adelman. "He had no role at all. Nor does it justify his taking credit for the work of others."
