Good Riddance

Mike Nifong has been disbarred.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A disciplinary committee said Saturday disgraced prosecutor Mike Nifong will be disbarred for his disastrous prosecution of three Duke University lacrosse players falsely accused of rape—a punishment the veteran prosecutor admitted was appropriate."

This matter has been a fiasco. There's no doubt about it," said committee chairman F. Lane Williamson.

This was no fiasco, it was an outrage. Nifong discredited the entire North Carolina criminal justice system by his actions. Nifong will literally be dragged from pillar to post by the legal community in retribution. And he'll deserve every second of it.
