Talkleft has a story on demotion of two Dallas police supervisors in the wake of a 2001 drug-frame scandal; informants, paid by the quantity of drugs recovered as a result of their tips, manufactured fake drugs, planted them on innocent people, and turned them in. The report of the investigation is available here. Coincidentally, Sentencing Law and Policy has an interesting post about the problems with quantity based sentencing in drug cases. Criminal Law has a series of posts about a week in the life of a criminal defense lawyer--this will bring back memories for about half of us CrimProfs.  Crime and Federalism has a nice series on pay for Massachusetts panel attorneys--follow-ups here and here. WhiteCollarCrimeProf has a post on an SEC civil enforcement action against KMart.   [Jack Chin]
