Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson, an Armstrong Teasdale client, had been living under a dark cloud for several years while the Department of Justice investigated allegations of favoritism. The probe was a result of unsubstantiated complaints by critics who disagreed with the sweeping changes that Jackson instituted as HUD secretary during the Bush administration.
The nightmare lifted in May 2010 when the Justice Department ended its investigation without bringing charges.
“I want to thank my attorneys who have been with me throughout and assisted me greatly,” Jackson said when he heard the news. “They are great lawyers and wonderful friends.”
