CrimProf to Run for Congress

Katz_sm Plain Dealer Bureau Washington- A longtime Case Western Reserve University law professor says he will challenge U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette for election next November.  Lewis Katz, 66, a law school professor for 40 years and a Democrat, said he decided to take his first run at elected office as the American death toll in Iraq approached 2,000. He said he is concerned about this nation's direction and is disappointed that LaTourette "has been awfully silent on Iraq" and on proposals to partially privatize Social Security.  LaTourette, 51, a six-term Republican from Concord Township and a former Lake County prosecutor, said in a statement: "As someone who practiced criminal law for 15 years, I have a great deal of respect for Lewis Katz's work as a professor. I look forward to debating the future of America with him."
