WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department inspector general has criticized a former top FBI agent in Milwaukee for showing "extremely poor judgment" in response to a discrimination lawsuit against the agency.

The report issued Wednesday involves Justin Slaby, a Wisconsin native who had lost his left hand in an Army training accident and was later turned down for a job as an FBI agent. He sued, saying he was denied a fair chance at the job.

The report found that Teresa Carlson, the former leader of the Milwaukee FBI field office, appeared to seek to influence the testimony of a special agent scheduled to testify in that case. Carlson, who has since been transferred from her post in Milwaukee to one in Washington, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
