Thompson Memo Revised by Deputy AG Paul McNulty

The new DOJ policy, destined to be called The McNulty Memo, is discussed by the WSJ law blog here Stack_newspapers_1 and by the White Collar Crime Prof Blog here.  It does not abandon the earlier policy so much as centralizes it and creates pre-screening in DOJ.  No word yet on whether this move will preempt the proposed legislation by Arlen Specter meant to reverse, and not just reform, the earlier Thompson Memo policy.  [Alan Childress]

UPDATE:  Much more LPB on the McNulty Pocket Part here.  Is it just a PR move?
