Janet Reno, former Attorney General, received a standing ovation at the Friday luncheon of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) Conference in Miami, Florida. Reno, who when Attorney General strictly enforced 6050I violations, including proceeding against criminal defense lawyers, was welcomed to this group. She spoke of several items, including the importance of juvenile justice and protections for the innocent.
It is interesting to see how past Attorney General's are being compared to the present officer-holder, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez. (see Ruth Marcus Column in the Miami Herald here)
