National Law Journal: Fitz Attorney of the Year

How about that? The National Law Journal clearly has an Anti-Bush agenda, because the runner up was the Jag Lt. Cmdr. who challenged the Guantanamo Bay detentions as unconstitutional.

The National Law Journal(R) today announced the selection of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald as its 2005 “Lawyer of the Year,” for his direction of the ongoing investigation into leaks related to CIA agent Valerie Plame. The editors of the newspaper also named Navy Lt. Cmdr. Charles Swift as the runner-up in this year’s award program for his role in challenging the constitutionality of the Guantanamo Bay prisoner tribunals, from within the military.

One by one, it seems that even establishment types are figuring out that the man in the White House has a screw loose. Check out the description of the National Law Journal’s parent company:

ALM currently owns and publishes 39 national and regional magazines and newspapers, including The American Lawyer(R), Corporate Counsel(R), The National Law Journal and Real Estate Forum(R).

I am going to guess that Lilek’s dismissal of these guys as sandal-wearing long-hairs is going to fall a little flat. Can’t wait to hear what Gerhardt Westrick and Dr. Heinrich Albert have to say over at Powerline.

  1. No, no, no. Lileks and the instahack won’t be pinning these guys with the crunchy, liberal, pinko-commie label. Nosiree. They’ll be cast as Evil Trial Lawyers tm out to steal hard-earned money from the legal protection racket insurance companies, doctors and the rest of those godly, greedy capitalists.
