This from newsobserver.com a few hours ago:
Former District Attorney Mike Nifong will not be able to hide from a lawsuit in bankruptcy court, a federal judge ruled today.The rest of the newsobserver.com story's here.
The three exonerated lacrosse players who filed suit against the fallen prosecutor in October will be able to pursue their claims in federal civil court, Judge William L. Stocks ruled.
The ruling came more than a month after lawyers representing the players and Nifong presented their arguments in court.
Nifong was stripped of his law license and ousted from office last summer for his misconduct in the Duke lacrosse case.
A few thoughts now, with more to come tomorrow - - -
Many months ago North Carolina's attorney general's office turned down Nifong's request that the citizens of North Carolina foot the bill for his defense of his leading role in the frame-up attempt of three innocent young men.
Nifong has a nice pension, but not the money to pay for the extensive legal representation he's going to need to defend his malicious activities which took place for almost a year.
Nifong's malicious activities involved his working the frame-up attempt with Durham Police, Durham City, Duke University, Duke University Medical Center,DNA Security and numerous individuals.
Will any of them pony up money to help Nifong in an effort to help themselves?
I don't know.
But the question's worth asking.
Message to Nifong: Look out! Justice is coming.
Message to Duke's trustees: I don't need to tell you things are going to get uglier and Dukier because you already know that.
Question for the Duke trustees: Why are you standing by BOT chair Bob Steel and president Brodhead instead of Duke University?
