American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow Assails Appointment of Tony West

 

Another controversial appointment has been made by Attorney General Eric Holder. This time his appointment to the number 3 post at the Department of Justice is raising important questions.

Tony West served as assistant attorney general for the Civil Division and has now been named to acting associate attorney general.

What you may not know, though, is that West represented convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh, who fought on behalf of the Taliban and aided Al Qaeda. He’s now serving a 20-year prison sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001. And, what’s more, not only did West represent Lindh, but his firm was also involved in two other defense cases for terrorists working against the U.S.

    We recently reported that the Judicial Council’s Executive and Planning Committee hastily tried to ratify a rule change that would have transferred oversight responsibilities for trial court spending from the Council’s most representative advisory body, the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee (TCBAC), to the moribund and reclusive Advisory Committee on Fin […]

  • Citation Debt: What’s really needed is a new approach. 2015/05/26
    Over the past twenty years we’ve transformed a system of infraction based fines into a cycle of poverty. As it is now, it used to be that you had to pay the 35 dollar fine before you could contest your citation. Then the legislature started tacking on penalty assessments to fund every social cause near […]
