The D.C. government's ethics board has picked up a veteran attorney from the D.C. Office of the Attorney General for its legal team, the panel announced this week.
John "Jack" Grimaldi has joined the D.C. Board of Ethics and Government Accountability as a senior attorney after more than a decade at the Office of the Attorney General. He was an assistant attorney general in the office's legal counsel division.
At the board, Grimaldi will help with ethics advice. The panel gives ethics guidance and training to D.C. officials. It also probes alleged ethics law infractions and handles lobbyist filings and officials' financial disclosure reports.
In 2011, he won the Charles L. Reischel Writing Award from the Office of the Attorney General for an internal memorandum exploring a piece of D.C. Council legislation that year. The accolade, which is the office's highest writing honor, pays tribute to the late deputy of the office's appellate division.
