Nifong Stirs Up The Defense

Durham D.A. Mike Nifong made some inflammatory comments in court Tuesday, saying that "[i]t looked sometimes over the course of the last few months that some of these attorneys were almost disappointed that their clients didn't get indicted so they could be a part of this spectacle here in Durham."

He then went on vacation.

The attorneys in question were not amused. Bill Thomas and Butch Williams had some fairly pointed comments to make. Given Superior Court Judge Kenneth C. Titus' pointed comments on the behavior of attorneys in the case, Nifong might reconsider launching personal attacks in court.
