Judging: Life inside the Justice Department

Posted Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Michael Mukasey is expected to become the next Attorney General. But that last AG--Alberto Gonzales--now, he raised a number of questions, and it's not clear we've found the answers yet. On the next program, we convene a rare gathering of three former Department of Justice staffers, including one former US attorney fired this year by Gonzales. We'll talk about how the DOJ works, the role politics plays in prosecutions and what it means in our lives. You're invited to join the conversation. Tuesday at nine.


Government/Politics, Courts/Crime - Fire/Law Enforcement


John McKay, former US Attorney, western district of Washington
Geoffrey Mearns, Dean, Cleveland State University Marshall College of Law
Patrick McLaughlin, former US Attorney, northern district of Ohio
