Prior to his death, he was embroiled in a small legal spat about evidence distribution in a drug trafficking case, in which David’s investigator disregarded certain laws by arranging to keep the evidence in a different room. The government filed an appeal for penalties against David, and Aylor, and the presiding judge offered remarks during a hearing. It was ruled a fraudulent public disclosure of sealed data by the authorities. The punishments were overturned when federal agents submitted another document stating that the regulations were not willfully breached.
