Mike Nifong is now on vacation. He's enjoying a pleasant summer in his bunker. He needs to give his 'tude a rest. It's hard working pissing off every attorney you meet in court.
Several lawyers expressed outrage Tuesday at what they described as a preposterous, unprofessional and insulting comment District Attorney Mike Nifong made in a Monday court session on the Duke lacrosse case.
During a preliminary hearing, Nifong suggested that lawyers for some unindicted lacrosse players might wish they could share in the "spectacle" of the nationally publicized case.
These were his words: "It looked sometimes over the course of the last few months that some of these attorneys were almost disappointed that their clients didn't get indicted so they could be a part of this spectacle here in Durham."
One of those attorneys is Bill Thomas, who said Tuesday Nifong owes an apology to the lawyers, the court and the public.
