5th Circuit: Ex-prosecutor doesn’t have immunity

JACKSON, Miss. — A federal appeals court panel has upheld a ruling that former U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton does not have immunity from a lawsuit filed against him by former Mississippi Supreme Court Judge Oliver Diaz Jr.

Diaz and his wife, Jennifer, had accused Dunn Lampton and his cousin, Leslie B. Lampton, of invading their privacy and disclosing confidential information.

The appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans dealt only with Dunn Lampton.
