It's mostly used with 1.11 to avoid imputation of conflicts from former government attorneys to private firms. This rule allows private firms to hire government lawyers without fear of lost profits. Screening is also used where the prohibition is based on 1.9(a) or (b). However, my prof spent no time on this. I think disqualifications based on 1.9(a) or (b) are rather rare.

Is screening allowed under 1.10?

That's where 1.9(a) or (b) comes in. See 1.10(a)(2)(i-iii).
