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.
