As Attorney General Buddy Caldwell will be leaving his post after he lost the November 21 runoff against Jeff Landry, some questions are emerging about the way he has continued to grant state legal work to private lawyers, according to a report from WWL-TV.

State and government ethics experts were consulted on the matter and that resulted in a Legislative law being passed in June of 2014.
