Justice Department lawyer commits suicide
Nicholas A. Marsh, 37, was one of several Justice lawyers under investigation by a special prosecutor for possible legal improprieties that last year led a judge to vacate former Sen. Ted Stevens's conviction in a corruption case, reports The Post's Paul Duggan:
A spokeswoman for Marsh's lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed Monday that Marsh had killed himself, but offered no further details.
"Our deepest sympathies go out to Nick's family and friends on this sad day," Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer said in a statement, without commenting on how Marsh died. "The Department of Justice is a community, and today our community is mourning the loss of this dedicated young attorney."
Marsh was among several lawyers on the Justice team that prosecuted Stevens, a Republican. Stevens was defeated in his reelection bid shortly after his 2008 conviction and died Aug. 9 in a plane crash in Alaska.
