  • From abc.com - Boston's Suspect's Defense Team Gets Major Boost

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/b...5#.UX-DHMp49qs

    excerpt
    The defense team representing the Boston Marathon bombing suspect got a major boost Monday with the addition of Judy Clarke, a San Diego lawyer who has won life sentences instead of the death penalty for several high-profile clients, including the Unabomber and the gunman in the rampage that injured former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
    Clarke's appointment was approved Monday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler.
    The judge denied, at least for now, a request from Miriam Conrad, the public defender of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to appoint a second death penalty lawyer, David Bruck, a professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law.

      Nobody from Harvard will take him?

      • Been off the site for a while so only catching up on this thread now

        When I heard of the attack it was bad news allright

        - but I don't know anyone from there so...

        Next day through the online grapevine I hear that the daughter of my cousin in the USA was very badly injured in it

        Boy was I angry!!!!

        When they cornered that guy in the boat I would gladly have climbed in and

        ....

        Thankfully as it turns out while badly hurt her injuries were not as bad as 1st feared

        She will recover in time Please God

          And you were worried that he was going to be represented by the public defender's office

            Nice to know America treats Islamic terrorists better than poor people.

                Indeed. The poor should try shooting up the place and tossing a few bombs.
