For those who haven't seen it, a reminder that the "diversity" crusade that motivated the Group of 88 is hardly confined to Duke.
FIRE's blog, The Torch, also has several posts commenting on the University's conduct in the lacrosse case.
Today's N&O provides a good example of the conflict-of-interest US Attorney Anna Mills Waggoner has in investigating the DPD: as Chief Jose Lopez stated (in talking about RICO prosecutions of gangs),
"The U.S. Attorney's Office is not saying we can't do it," said Lopez, who met with federal prosecutors based in North Carolina shortly after taking the chief job in September. "If we do have a good candidate for a RICO case, they would be more than willing to work with us."So, Waggoner would be investigating a force that she works with on a regular basis.
And a reminder, for readers in the Triangle, my colleague Stuart Taylor will be speaking at Duke tomorrow night.
