NACDL’s annual meeting in Denver included formal action regarding
ethical issues surrounding the Bush Administration’s rules governing
conduct of trials of "enemy combatants" in military tribunals. NACDL’s
Board of Directors passed a resolution deeming it unethical for lawyers
to participate in the tribunals under current rules, and advising that
counsel who do participate raise every possible objection to the
restrictions put in place by the rules. For the full text of the
resolution and accompanying ethics opinion, visit www.nacdl.org under News & Issues.
Attendees at the meeting also heard former U.S. Senator Gary Hart (D-CO)
address the meeting’s Friday luncheon, and many took the opportunity to
visit a shooting range to gain a better understanding of forensic
issues related to ballistics evidence as part of the "21st Century
Forensics" seminar at the meeting.
Seminar speakers included renowned forensic expert Dr. Henry Lee of Meriden, CT.
