Senate Judiciary Committee to Hold Hearing on Mishandling of Ted Stevens Prosecution


The chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has announced that the committee will hold a hearing next week on the court-appointed special counsel's report finding prosecutorial abuses in the case against then-U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens (R.-Alaska).    Sen. Patrick Leahy (D.-Vermont) said that the lead investigator, Washington lawyer Henry Schuelke, will testify at the hearing Wednesday, March 28, at 10 a.m. East Coast time.    "Leahy's office did not indicate whether any of the defense lawyers who represented the Stevens prosecutors have been invited to speak at the hearing," reported The Blog of the Legal Times.

I am intrigued by the fact that Matthew Friedrich, the AAG who seems to have set in motion this whole Stevens trainwreck left federal service shortly thereafter , some time around March of 2009 to work for a high-priced Washington law firm defending Goldman Sachs. Do you know when he handed in his resignation?
