Scott Horton applauds Holder's decision on the Stevens case:
Attorney General Eric Holder has decided that the Justice Department should abandon the corruption conviction secured against former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. The bombshell decision has nothing to do with the merits of the case against Stevensit stems from a recognition that the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section behaved unethically in the conduct of the casewithholding vital evidence from the defense, among other things. Holder is himself a former Public Integrity prosecutor. He made the right call in the Stevens case.
