JURIST – Paper Chase: DOJ moves to set aside verdict against ex-senator Ted Stevens:

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a motion in federal court Wednesday seeking to set aside the verdict and dismiss the indictment on corruption charges against former senator Ted Stevens (R-AK).

Absolutely appalling. Is this what happens when you hire based on politics? Is this the equivalent of management at FEMA during Katrina? Lawyers may be the butt of many jokes, but most/all the attorneys I know attempt to uphold high standards of ethics. It’s certainly what we’re taught throughout law school. This kind of behavior—no joke—gives criminal law and the entire criminal justice system a bad reputation that is bad for everyone.
