From TPMM, though no details about why or when:

Bradley Schlozman, a former Justice Departmentofficial who was at the center of the U.S. attorneys scandal and isunder investigation by the Departments inspector general for hisalleged efforts to politicize the Civil Rights Division, has finallyleft his post at the Department.

And while we’re counting people leaving DOJ, one of the good guys is leaving, too:

DLA Piper US LLP today announced that Peter Zeidenberg, a leading trialattorney, has joined the firm as a partner in the Washington, He comes to the firm from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)where he served as trial attorney in the Public Integrity Section ofthe Criminal Division.

In his capacity as Trial Attorney,Zeidenberg was engaged in the investigation and prosecution of local,state and federal public officials. His trial experience includesprosecution of some of the highest profile criminal cases handled bythe DOJ.

In addition to winning the "Who’s Your Daddy" contest at the Libby trial, Zeidenberg won the first trial conviction, of David Safavian, in the Abramoff case. Our country will miss the services of Zeidenberg much more acutely than those of Schlozman.
