DOJ Flip-Flops On Wiretap Policy Last week’s announcement that the White House would not reauthorize the program and would conduct such surveillance only under the authority of the secret FISA court was short on details. • Familiar Face: Hertling Appears at Gonzales Hearing Richard Hertling, who spent 13 years working for moderate Senate Republicans and the past 10 days as the Justice Department’s acting chief lobbyist, is more evidence that President George W. Bush wants his last two years as confrontation-free as possible. • Rose-Colored: Bolick Opening a New Constitutional Litigation Center Clint Bolick dug even deeper roots in Arizona, announcing he’ll open a new constitutional litigation center at the Goldwater Institute and join the Scottsdale-based Rose Law Group. • First Impressions: Brizill Takes on Fenty GC Longtime D.C. watchdog Dorothy Brizill hasn’t wasted time making friends in Mayor Adrian Fenty’s new administration. • Former Interior Official Under Investigation Leaves Lundquist, Nethercutt & Griles Lobbying firm Lundquist, Nethercutt & Griles has severed ties with former Department of the Interior Deputy Secretary J. Steven Griles. Griles has been targeted in the Justice Department’s ongoing corruption probe stemming from the lobbying activities of Jack Abramoff. • Extra Time: Ney Gets 30-Month Prison Term Prosecutors have hardly been lax when going after officials touched by the illegal dealings of now-convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. But during the sentencing of former Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio) last week, it became clear the Justice Department isn’t the only one cracking down in the string of corruption scandals that have rocked the capital. • Sikh School: Film Aimed to Educate About Sikhs in America The Justice Department’s Community Relations Service has released a new film aimed at educating law enforcement and airport screeners about Sikhs in America. • Penalty Death: Death Sentences Can’t Be Sought in Drug and Murder Case Six co-defendants from the Congress Park Crew face 92 felony drug and murder charges in a trial set to begin this week in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, but they possibly got a lucky break when Judge Richard Roberts barred prosecutors from seeking the death penalty.
