Indictment Against Ken Lay Dismissed

There were no surprises in today's dismissal of the indictment against Ken Lay. (see CNN here).  As previously noted, the Fifth Circuit in an en banc decision ruled clearly on the status of a criminal conviction after the death of the accused but prior to a review of the case on appeal. (see here and here). And yet despite the clear law, prosecutors opposed the motion for abatement of the conviction. (see here) Tom Kirkendall, at Houston ClearThinkers, offers some commentary here.
