Judge Halts Terror Trial

So, now the question is, “How many of you feel that our justice system is fair?” I mean, come on that guy already admitted to being a conspirator!  What else do you need from him?

U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema, clearly exasperated by the new problems in the oft-delayed case, called the conduct of Carla J.

Even prosecutors were stunned by Martin’s actions, calling them “reprehensible” in court papers and adding, “We frankly cannot fathom why she engaged in such conduct.”
