Superior Court Judge Zinora Mitchell-Rankin of judicial bias because of her comments about El Salvador in a sexual abuse case, which is scheduled for oral arguments Nov. 17 before the D.C. Court of Appeals. • Head On: Ambulance Chasing Law Runs Into Lawsuit A new D.C. law that prohibits “ambulance chasing” by lawyers or their intermediaries, called “runners,” collided with a lawsuit last week from two personal injury lawyers. • TRAC-ing Terror: FBI Lashes Out at Terror Report A new report that raises questions about the effectiveness of the FBI’s anti-terrorism efforts has spurred a sharp response from the bureau. • Rookie Review: Attorney Wins High Court Praise Supreme Court justices are notoriously stingy with praise for the lawyers arguing before them.
