Justice Department officials say that when senators were considering Eric Holder's nomination to be attorney general last year, he didn't given them all the legal briefs he had signed from his time in private practice.

Holder now has told the Senate Judiciary Committee about the lapse in turning over copies of the legal filings.

As part of the confirmation process, Holder submitted a list of all such legal briefs to the committee. But that list did not include filings in seven cases.

The issue of Holder's past legal papers came up after some Republicans asked why lawyers who had previously done legal work for terror detainees now had jobs in the Justice Department.
