  • Beating of defense attorney could be last straw for embattled DA’s office

    The Huffington Post - 03/15/2016

    Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University who has written in depth about prosecutorial misconduct, sees the situation in Orange County differently. He told HuffPost that last week’s courthouse violence is yet another sign, “among many,” that the DA’s office is not functioning properly.

    “The fact that the informant scandal went on for so long and on such a broad scale, of course, suggests significant dysfunction and a lack of an ethical compass in the office,” Medwed said. “This [altercation] is just another symptom of that larger malady: an office that may need outside monitoring, including possible federal oversight.”
