Russell Pearce was quoted in Rolling Stone about the ethical complaints and allegations raised against U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions.
“There is no question in my mind” that Sessions should resign, Fordham Law professor Russell Pearce, a revered expert in legal ethics and one of the signers of the complaint against Conway, tells Rolling Stone. “The attorney general of the United States should be above any appearance of impropriety.”
Asked what it would mean for the legal profession if an ethics complaint like the one against Conway is made and the bar does nothing, Pearce says, “If the disciplinary authorities ignore this, shame on them. They make a mockery of our ethics rules if they don’t apply to the attorney general of the United States.”
