1. Lawyers Regulating Lawyers Helps Breed
Corruption
by Roger Shuler for Legal Schnauzer

In the wake of the bingo indictments in Alabama, many citizens
probably have forgotten what led to the arrests: a series of highly
questionable decisions by the Alabama Supreme Court.

In fact, the decisions were so questionable that they prompted an
investigation into allegations that outside forces influenced the court's
bingo-related rulings. Many Alabamians probably believe that a real
inquiry ensued. After all, former Supreme Court justice Gorman
Houston said recently that he spent more than 100 hours
investigating the issue and found no evidence of wrongdoing.

But we would suggest that Houston almost certainly was not looking
for anything, at least not in a serious fashion.
