The 10 most outrageous civil liberties violations of 2006.
By Dahlia Lithwick
Yeah, you guessed it: DA Mike Nifong`s Hunt for the Great White Defendants
in the Duke Lacrosse Frame-Up
is a no-show. You see, the long-running pattern of hate crime hoaxes victimizing white male college students is nothing compared to, say, #8 on Lithwick`s List, the Bush Administration "Slagging the Media."

, the hoax continues to implode. Nifong dropped the rape charges but is pressing on with other felony charges. Meanwhile, the North Carolina State Bar is investigating Nifong for ethics violations
. And now the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys has asked him to recuse
himself from the case. [Crossposted at Isteve.com
