Summary:

In a story about the Justice Department investigating allegations of conservative bias playing a role in attorney hirings, the Boston Globe referred to an earlier story in which the paper used FOIA to obtain the resumes of successful applicants to some sections of DOJ's Civil Rights Division. The resumes showed the division hiring more attorneys than it previously had with strong conservative credentials.
