Another Voice Objecting to the McNulty Memo

The McNulty memo, discussed here, here, here, and here, is clearly controversial.  Another voice can be added to those proclaiming that the memo is deficient as not going far enough.  This time it is William Sullivan of Winston & Strawn.  Last March, Sullivan, a former prosecutor, testified before the House.  He appeared along with Tom Donahue, former Attorney General Thornburgh, and former Associate Attorney General Robert McCallum. William Sullivan now provides a detailed release Download Untitled.pdf that states is part:

"Ultimately, the Memorandum's piecemeal revisions may in the short term appease some critics and forestall imminent judicial and congressional action, but they do not demonstrate an earnest re-evaluation of Department policies regarding corporate criminal enforcement, and fail to provide meaningful procedural change."

I agree with the observation that the McNulty Memo has procedural shortcomings and a variety of other flaws, but I have not found many, if any, critics who are appeased.
