Nifong Suspended

Two days ago, Durham District Attorney Michael Nifong was found guilty on 27 of 32 ethical charges brought against him by the NC State Bar in handling the Duke lacrosse case. As a result of those findings, Mr. Nifong was disbarred on Saturday. Earlier today, Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson suspended Mr. Nifong ending his career immediately as a district attorney.

Beth Brewer, a courageous Durham resident, should be congratulated and praised for providing the legal mechanism for the judge to issue Mr. Nifong’s suspension today. If not for the petition that Beth Brewer filed several months ago to remove Mr. Nifong from office, the suspension today might not have been possible. Thank you Beth Brewer, for being a good citizen!

    Is it just me, but where were the other attorney's in the DA's office on this case. Did someone not say to Mike....whoa, this case does not have legs?

    Or did everyone try not to look.

    It's implausible that none of the assistant DA's were aware of the case files and what was there or not there. No?

    When will those of you crowing about this news start the conversation about what the players owe Duke and Durham for the consequences of the bad judgment they used when they threw their party last March, furnished alcohol to underage team members, drank to excess, hired strippers, and yelled racist epithets on the public streets of Durham? None of this, as I recall, was Nifong's doing? And yet their bad decisions and illegal and just plain boorish behavior had serious consequences for the university they claim to (have) loved, the team they belonged to, and the community they resided in.

    Are they to be held accountable for nothing?

    When are you going to stop littering every page of this site with your ridiculous comment? Isn't it enough to post it once? Too bad you are not happy with the outcome. Such is life. Truth always wins over a bunch of lies. You will simply have to come to grips with that?
