Judge: AG Eric Holder Must Participate in Contempt Case And Can’t Appeal It

A federal judge put an end to Attorney General Eric Holder’s request to appeal his contempt case following the bungled gun-running Operation Fast and Furious, Politico reports.

Monday’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson potentially puts Holder on the hot seat.

The ruling means the Justice Department likely will be forced to show a log of the events surrounding the botched sting.

A protracted legal battle is expected.

The Justice Department declined to comment on the ruling.
