'Underneath Their Robes': Attorney No Longer Cloaked In Blog

An AP newswire article, via CBS News, reports that:

The author of a sassy blog about the federal judiciary, "Underneath Their Robes," is no longer cloaked in mystery, and it turns out it's a federal prosecutor.

The writer of the Web log, which had humorous references to judges as "hotties" and "babes," purported to be a young, female lawyer who worked in San Francisco. But in an interview with The New Yorker magazine published this week the author identified himself as Assistant U.S. Attorney David Lat of Newark.

The blog was taken off line Monday in a "mutually agreed upon decision," The Record of Bergen County reported Wednesday, citing an unidentified source. The site appeared to require a password to access it Wednesday.

Lat, one of about 100 assistants working under U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie, was still employed there Tuesday, office spokesman Michael Drewniak told the newspaper. He declined to comment further.
