Justice after all

Nifong disbarred
The Ethics Complaint Against D.A. Nifong

The North Carolina State Bar charged Nifong with lying to both the court and bar investigators and withholding critical DNA test results from the players' defense attorneys. (Read the complaint)

The committee, after deliberating for a little more than an hour, unanimously agreed with the bar on almost every charge -- including the most serious allegations -- that Nifong's actions involved "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation."

"It didn't click," (Nifong's Attorney Witt said as he tried to explain one of his client's errors. "His mind is just his mind. That's the way it works. It just didn't click."

I'm beginning to think that District Attorney should not be an elected position.


  1. Mr. Nifong got most of what he deserved and in public as it should have been.

    Makes you think? "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation"

  2. Maybe PVG wants to hire Nifong. He got Stoen, Dollison, Schwartz and Klien. Gee the guy would be right at home here.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
