Carona had a romantic relationship with a top federal prosecutor caused government officials to bar about 250 federal attorneys from handling his case, lawyers disclosed in court Thursday. All prosecutors assigned to the U.S. attorney's offices in Los Angeles and Santa Ana have been prohibited from any involvement in the case, except for two prosecutors who report directly to supervisors in Washington. Until now, officials had declined to publicly account for that unusual arrangement.

A judge denied a motion Friday by the onetime mistress of former Sheriff Michael S. Carona to disqualify the two prosecutors handling a corruption case against her and Carona. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford found that Debra Hoffman's allegations of prosecutorial misconduct did not "rise to a level warranting" removal of the federal attorneys. Guilford also ordered prosecutors to provide him with documents that explain why they were not included in a mass recusal of about 250 colleagues from the U.S. attorney's offices in Los Angeles and Santa Ana.
