A dam burst in Durham

Blogger and Duke Mom Betsy Newmark says:

I can't imagine that Nifong won't be disbarred after this. I wonder if he'll still get a pension once he has been disbarred. If I were in the Durham government, I'd want to quick pass a provision that would deny him any pension if he is disbarred.

They can use that money for the legal expenses the county is going to have not only defending themselves from any suit that the lacrosse players might bring but also from those who had been convicted in prosecutions run by Mike Nifong and now will ask for new trials. Especially if there was any DNA evidence involved. How can anyone have any faith in any other prosecution that this man conducted now that it is so clear about how easily he corrupted the whole procedure in this case? (bold mine)
New trials for people convicted in prosecutions run by Mike Nifong?

Betsy's right, isn't she?

It's going to be a dam burst.

Be sure to read the rest of Betsy's insightful post, "Nifong hoist by his own petard."

This guy is delusional.

I am still waiting to hear from lawyer Antoun again. Has he abandoned the field?
