WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia Bar Assn is investigating an incident in which a lawyer for Ralph Nader played a White House tape at a party.
The justice department is pondering whether to take independent action against the I a vv y e r , William Dobrovir “No decision has been made,” one official said Dobrovir declined to answer any questions about the investigation. “I have no comment. period,” he said.
He is refusing to allow newsmen into his offices pending the outcome of the affair Associates say he is seeking
an attorney to represent him in any disciplinary proceedings
In the bar association probe, legal authorities said, Dobrovir probably will face no worse than a censure motion, if that. They said suspension and disbarment appear unlikely.
Fred Grabowsky. counsel for the association’s disciplinary board, said he decided to investigate the incident after hearing about it on the radio.
“The matter is under consideration,” he said “We will take the action we feel appro pilate.”
Dobrovir won the tape after a lengthy court fight, then
played five minutes of it for seven friends at a salami and-cocktail gathering in Georgetown, a fashionable section of Washington He later apologized to the judge in the case and said "I made a foolish mistake ”
The judge. William Jones, ordered Dobrovir to refrain from making premature release of material in the case but took no disciplinary' action He said the justice department could direct any complaints about Dohrovirs behavior to the association The department’s decision now apparently rests with Attorney General Saxbe. sworn iii Friday
The White House has repeat cdlv referred to the incident critically, and Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler once suggested that Dobrovir may have broken the law.
Dobrovir won the tape and some other documents in a Ralph Nader suit accusing the administration of granting a 1971 milk price increase as a political payoff for $427,000 in campaign donations from three giant dairy co-operatives.
