Documents Reveal New Details On Ney Activities Court documents filed last week in the corruption prosecution of former Rep. Bob Ney offer new details about the Ohio Republican’s illicit activities — and suggest that Ney was aided in those dealings by a key staffer. • Staying Put: Mendelson Retains Post in New D.C. Government While change rolls through the D.C. government at least one veteran said last week he will keep his post. D.C. Council member Phil Mendelson (D-At-large) retained his chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee, although its name grew a bit longer to become the Public Safety and the Judiciary Committee. • FEMA Fetish: Judge Leon Continues Oversight of FEMA When a judge issues an order, it’s usually up to the winning party to tell the court if its wishes are not being fulfilled. But Judge Richard Leon is taking no chances when it comes to the Federal Emergency Management Agency • Name Dropping: Who Will Replace Harriet Miers? Harriet Miers was hardly a household name when she was chosen as the White House’s top lawyer in 2004. Though Republican lawyers are uncertain who President George W. Bush will name to replace her when she steps down at the end of the month, they are certain it will be a Republican litigator familiar with the politics of Washington. • Orrick, Dewey Call Off Deal New York’s Dewey Ballantine and San Francisco’s Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe announced last week that they have called off their merger discussions. • Not Good Enough: McNulty’s Memo Criticized Corporations and civil libertarians hailed the “McNulty memo” as a major victory in preserving attorney-client privilege. But now those groups say the December memo, named after Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty, did not do enough. • Leaving the Lab: DEA Chemists Coming to Court as Expert Witnesses Drug Enforcement Administration chemists will be trekking from their lab in Largo, Md., to D.C. Superior Court more often after a Dec. 28 ruling by the D.C. Court of Appeals, which found that a defendant’s Sixth Amendment right to confront witnesses doesn’t exclude expert witnesses such as chemists.
