In one of the stranger filings of the civil suit, Nifong attorney James Craven demands that the suit against his client be dismissed--in an 11-line brief.
Under the law, the disgraced ex-attorney had absolute immunity for all actions taken as DA. But how does Craven address in these eleven lines the police notes and actions showing how Nifong also acted in a police supervisory role--for which he doesn't have absolute immunity?
Craven simply ignores the material--and then, incredibly, urges the judge to incorporate into his brief the arguments of . . . Linwood Wilson, who is acting as his own attorney.
So, Nifong has a lawyer who has chosen to rely on the legal musings of a fired DA investigator who isn't even an attorney. Quite remarkable.
