As a believer in karma, I do not take pleasure in the misfortune of others, especially when that misfortune occurs on the legal professional stage. Yet when a prosecution mistake resulted in a mistrial in the Rogers Clemens case many weeks ago, I could not suppress my delight. Here was a case where the federal government opted to spend millions of dollars and waste countless hours prosecuting a former baseball player for allegedly making false statements to Congress. Given the current congressional quagmire and lack of any reliable information coming from our government representatives, the fact that someone was prosecuted for lying to Congress is just ridiculous. The fact that it involved baseball-related issues which affect approximately zero percent of the U.S. population made it even more ridiculous. And when the government prosecution went down in flames due to a horrendous and amateurish mistake, I admit to rejoicing.
