A federal judge, granting a request by lawyers defending a former FBI agent charged with lying, removed two government attorneys from the prosecution team. U.S. District Judge George H. Revercomb disqualified Assistant U.S. Atty. Robert R. Chapman and Richard M. Rogers, deputy counsel in the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility, because they may appear as witnesses against former Cleveland agent Robert S. Friedrick. Friedrick faces a trial on charges that he helped Jackie Presser, president of the Teamsters Union, evade indictment in a payroll-padding scheme.
