Under Indictment: Governor Rick Perry - Podcast

Criminal Law & Procedure Practice Group Podcast
John S. Baker, Jr. August 28, 2014

The recent indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry has garnered huge press attention. In an unusual alignment, commentators from both the left and the right have been highly critical of the indictment, with the New York Times editorial board calling it “the product of an overzealous prosecution.” But condemnation of the indictment has not been perfectly unanimous, and a few commentators have now come out in support of the indictment. We examined all the details on a Teleforum conference call.

Obama's Enforcer: Eric Holder's Justice Department - Event Audio/Video

Las Vegas Lawyers Chapter
John Fund, Hans A. von Spakovsky August 28, 2014

From “Fast and Furious” to the unprecedented surveillance of journalists, Eric Holder’s Justice Department has become the dark side of the Obama Administration. The Attorney General is at the center of a growing list of scandals and congressional investigations. Obama’s Enforcer uncovers how the DOJ has become a hotbed of left-wing legal activism. It delves into the close personal association of Holder and Obama, describes the politicization of the Department of Justice, and provides in-depth portraits of the radical lawyers in Holder’s inner circle. The book has been endorsed by Sen. Ted Cruz and Radio Talk Show host Mark Levin. The Las Vegas Lawyers Chapter hosted this event on August 11, 2014.
