Judges and attorneys in Georgia, Washington and Alabama spent Tuesday coping with fallout from U.S. District Senior Judge Jack T. Camp's arrest on federal drug and gun charges. Judges, including Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., sought someone to oversee the criminal case and determine how to reassign Camp's caseload. Some attorneys experienced in defending federal drug cases said the crimes with which Camp is charged, if prosecuted at all, would likely have been handled by local prosecutors, had Camp not been a federal judge.
