Friday Legal Roundup

Here’s a Friday Legal Roundup:

  • North Carolina prosecutor Michael Nifong goes to jail for his misconduct in bringing reckless charges against Duke athletes. Cato will be hosting a book forum on the case next Tuesday. Previous coverage here and here
  • A federal judge has ruled that ”National Security Letters” are unconstitutional.  Cato said so here.
  • The Federalist Society has an on-line discussion on the landmark Second Amendment lawsuit involving Cato’s Tom Palmer and Bob Levy here. To learn more, go here and here.
  • President Bush is expected to announce his choice for the position of Attorney General. The Legal Times invited several D.C. lawyers, including myself, to offer advice to the next AG.  Go here for my list of Dos and Don’ts. If the Legal Times had not imposed word limits on my article, I could have said a lot more.
