The Santa Clara County District Attorney appears to be softening her boycott of a superior court judge.
But a spokesman for Carr said Monday she only intended for the ban to cover felonies, not misdemeanors such as petty theft and trespassing.
Carr had said in January her decision was based on a number of Bryan's rulings. Bryan had angered the district attorney's office earlier that month when she ordered the release of a man convicted of child molestation, citing prosecutorial misconduct.
Some legal experts were critical of Carr's decision, saying it could affect judicial oversight of prosecutors.
