Daily Journal fills DC bureau

Reporter Robert Iafolla can put away his Pellicano case notes. He's been named the L.A. Daily Journal's federal government reporter based in Washington. Newsroom note from Editor Martin Berg:

Please join me in wishing Bobby Iafolla well as he abandons Southern California and the federal court beat for Washington, D.C. and the federal government beat recently vacated by Lawrence Hurley. Bobby has distinguished himself with his tenacity and productivity in covering the Pellicano case, the U.S. attorney's office and lots of other great stories. As much as we will miss his federal court coverage, I know he's going to tear up Washington, D.C. and continue to bring us, and himself, much acclaim. Marty

Well, almost put away his notes. I'm told he won't be leaving town until after the Terry Christensen trial concludes.
