‘Main Justice’ Coverage of Santa Fe Conference Begins

Calling it a “lively discussion,” Main Justice has reported on Saturday’s NAFUSA WikiLeaks panel.

Should the U.S. government prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for disclosing a vast trove of classified State Department cables and military documents?

The pros and cons of prosecution– and whether WikiLeaks is legally distinguishable from newspapers and other traditional media – were debated Saturday at the National Association of Former U.S. Attorneys annual conference in Santa Fe, N.M.

In another article about the conference, Main Justice reports on the J. Michael Bradford Award.

Ken Sorenson said he was “speechless” when former District of Columbia U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens called to tell him on behalf of NAFUSA he’d won the J. Michael Bradford award. He thanked the organization for “thinking about the guys out there in the trenches.”

Sorenson won the Award for his prosecution of a military technology espionage case. Main Justice has the details.
