Ludo Bagman was brought to the Ministry of Magic for a trial when he was accused of having passed information to Lord Voldemort. He had given information to Augustus Rookwood who worked in the Department of Mysteries and was a friend of Ludo's father. Bagman was unaware that Rookwood was a Death Eater and in the end, he was cleared of all charges due to being a popular Quidditch player and after this, was never again accused of allegiance with Death Eaters. His being cleared did not sit well with Crouch.
