A judge’s order prohibits Rep. David Stringer from turning over a document sought by the House Ethics Committee in its investigation into sex crime charges he faced in Maryland the early 1980s, according to the Arizona Supreme Court.

The revelation could be a substantial obstacle as the committee seeks to enforce a subpoena ordering Stringer to turn over documents related to the Maryland case by March 27.

William O’Neil, the presiding disciplinary judge for the Arizona Supreme Court, signed a protective order earlier this month barring the release of a 1984 letter from the Washington, D.C., Bar, dismissing a complaint regarding charges that were filed against Stringer the year before, while he was living in Baltimore.

Stringer’s attorney sought the order during a State Bar of Arizona investigation into whether the Prescott Republican properly disclosed his past legal issues when he applied to practice law in Arizona.
