Last Gasp To Stop F. Lee Bailey Admission Rejected

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court has rejected the motion of the Board of Bar Examiners for reconsideration of its recent order directing the admission of F. Lee Bailey.

The board had apparently sought to persuade the court to defer to its credibility determinations.

The court found that a 2005 First Circuit opinion in a matter "unrelated to F. Lee Bailey" fully supported Bailey's credibility:

the opinion...provides significant insight into Government practices in the early 1990s that apparently allowed and approved defense attorneys being paid from funds that were subject to forfeiture proceedings.
