More comments on the prosecutorial misconduct report from the Ted Stevens case

The New York Times has published an editorial on the need for the Department of Justice to "take an even closer look at the powers and responsibilities of its prosecutors, after a scathing new report on the case by a court-appointed investigator" after the DoJ acknowledged pervasive prosecutorial misconduct in the corruption trial of the late Senator Ted Stevens.  The editorial is available here.

The LawProfs Blawg has a more detailed discussion of the report here.

The Legal Profession blog has a short comment here.

The Blog of the Legal Times is reporting (here) that the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on March 28 at 10 a.m., to discuss the allegations of prosecutorial misconduct in the Ted Stevens case.  The author of the report is expected to testify.
