Nifong Seeks Reimbursement for Attorneys Fees

The ABA Journal reports that disbarred, discredited and disgraced former Durham District Attorney and former inmate Mike Nifong has formally requested that Durham should either assume his defense in the civil suit that the former Duke lacrosse players have filed, or pay for him to hire counsel. Of course he has. Nifong claims that he is entitled to this because the claims arose out of his work as DA. Under Nifong’s theory, a bank guard who participates in a robbery of the bank where he works would be entitled to have the bank pay for his defense against bank robbery charges because the charges arose out of the guard’s work at the bank. The man has no shame. None at all.
