Two pieces of news:
The Herald-Sun reports that taxi driver Moezeldin Elmostafa has settled his civil suit against the department store chain whose bogus allegations of shoplifting were used by Mike Nifong and the DPD to pressure Elmostafa to change his story in the lacrosse case.
And Durham County’s new “minister of justice,” Tracey Cline, e-mails to dispute my characterization of her as indifferent to ethics. “To seek justice,” writes she, “must be done ethically or else it is not justice.”
So that’s the message she wanted to communicate by inviting Mike Nifong as a special guest to her swearing-in ceremony.
