According to this piece in the National Law Journal, Attorney General Eric Holder met with about 90 federal district judges,
At the meeting, Holder said improvements to the Office of Professional Responsibility were imminent. "The attorney general said he was going to take [OPR] complaints very seriously and that the whole process has to be more transparent and timely resolved," said one chief judge.
Holder invited the judges to contact him directly about problem prosecutors and other areas of concern. He even gave the crowd his phone number, a symbolic gesture that resonated with many judges who say the department's emphasis on national security, while justified, has put distance between the two branches in recent years. The judges said Holder won high marks for his candor and attentiveness. (He received two standing ovations -- one more than any visiting attorney general in recent memory, the judges said.) . . .
Holder also said his department would take steps to eliminate the vast disparities in federal sentencing for possession of crack versus powdered cocaine and expressed his commitment to look into alternative courts to deal with drug-related offenses, the judges said.
