FIEGER CONTROVERSY FLARES AGAIN
(2007-02-28)
(wgvu) - The controversy between trial lawyer
Geoffrey Fieger and Attorney General Mike Cox has flared up again.
Today, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that an Ingham County
judge improperly blocked Cox from investigating Fieger for running
2004 election ads against a state Supreme Court justice.
The court also says Fieger's attorneys wrongly "shopped" for
the judge, who improperly obstructed warrants and subpoenas
authorized by a lower judge.
The ruling stems from Cox's campaign-finance probe of Fieger,
who spent nearly a half-million dollars on T-V ads bashing G-O-P
Justice Stephen Markman in the 2004 election.
Cox later turned the investigation over to a special prosecutor,
who said criminal charges weren't merited.
